Situated in a cozy dell off one of our local roads resides a chapel with the name "Little Church by the Side of the Road," a nomenclature I have always found sweetly New England. I've never ascertained the denomination of this diminutive house of worship, but it always struck me as peaceful and happy. Its welcome sign always bore a few gentle words, like "Blessed are the Meek!" and "Jesus is Your Best Friend!" Today I rode by and decided there's a new preacher in town. The sign now bears the legend, "Are You God's Promise? Or THE DEVIL'S REWARD?"
