We have had a wayside pulpit since we first moved here. It displays a message to people passing by, on a subject we feel strongly about and is relevant to the times. This page has the latest ones:
(On the terrorist attacks in London, July/August 2005)
WORST WAY: Shoot them!
(On the G8 summit, July 2005)

Here are the results of the US election:
This was the September 04 pulpit message:
Terrorism or climate change
625 deaths from terrorst attacks
