Roadside service: Drive-in church brings God to your car

When most people drive to church on Sunday, it’s to sit for an hour-long service on uncomfortable wooden pews. Not at the Daytona Beach Drive In Christian Church in Florida. As church attendance continues to decline in the United States, some parishes are doing what they can to draw congregants: embracing social media, loosening dress codes and even altering service times for big sporting events. At this church, people park in rows on the grass facing an altar on the balcony of an old drive-in theater. To hear the service, they switch on their radios. — NPR

The ad was intended to promote a new line of deodorants by encouraging people to see armpits in a more positive light. — ABC News
