Nothing Says "Holy" Like Helvetica. Apparently.

 This is the Twynholm Baptist Church on the corner of the street where our B&B is located. Sign makers must have some sort of Helvetica Special Sale going at all times here. I can understand using Helvetica for generic signage, like for "Post Office," but what's up with using it on churches? 

At least it's size is subtle. Oops, no it's not. You know guys, you could have made the name even larger if you'd hyphenated it and maybe let some of the letters hang out over the edge of the building. 

On the other hand, it does create a hard-to-miss landmark. In fact, I find myself wishing that all buildings were this clearly marked with a street name and number.
