A couple of weeks ago, our whole family decided to check out the Trinity Broadcasting Network headquarters. TBN is hard to miss–it stares across the 405 freeway at South Coast Plaza, and at Christmastime is lit up brighter than Vegas.

I decided to tell most of the tale with (poorly taken) pictures, because, to be honest, I didn’t find the place either very spiritual or very appealing. I realize that my tastes are different from others’, so hopefully the images can be a little more neutral than my tongue/keyboard.
