Magical Thinking at the Pump

Magical Thinking is alive and well.  Socionomics tells us this is only the beginning...

How one Georgia church is praying for lower gas prices
by Michael Babad, The Globe and Mail
If the markets can't bring down the high price of gasoline, try praying.

A small church in Georgia has organized a prayer service at a local gas station this Saturday, its third such session.

Bishop Marshall Mabry of the 60-member Beacon of Light Christian Center in Dublin, Ga., southeast of Atlanta, says the idea has been growing since he started it.

"Every time we do it, the number gets larger and larger," he said.

The service has a sweet message: That God will stabilize the economy, that the Middle East will see peace and U.S. troops will come home, and that gas prices will fall "to an amount that's affordable to a lot of people..."

Best of luck to him and his flock.
