We have visited several places already, and are due to visit many others. We have seen smaller churches and larger ones. Some of the churches have traditional services, and others are more modern. We also visited a train station built around a tree. They have turned it into a shrine. People donate toward the upkeep of the shrine, and leave written prayers there in hopes of coercing the gods to be kind to them. Churches should not be like that, but many seem to be. They should be monuments to the greatness and grace of God, not to human greed.
