  • Bumper sticker theology

    On most days as I’m on my way to work I see a car with a bunch of bumper stickers on the back.

    There’s a “26.2” and a “13.1” sticker that means the driver is probably a marathon/half-marathon runner. Other stickers say things like “Easy does it,” “One day at a time” and “Let go and let God.”

    I’ve seen those slogans before and they’re often associated with 12-step programs like AA, although they don’t belong to them exclusively.
