Columbus' strangest roadside symbol

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

You've undoubtedly seen the church with the "Jesus is Lord" rooftop - just south of the Morse Road exit as you're driving up I-71 North. Have you noticed the lighthouse attached to the roof? And did you ever see the man on the lighthouse balcony? He looks like the Cracker Jack guy.

He's a mysterious figure, dressed like a sailor. An investigation into his identity led nowhere, because I couldn't find a working number for the Calvary Temple Lighthouse Christian Academy School of Tomorrow, where the sailor resides.

It's an awesomely strange sight you should check out - just be careful not to get in an accident. The last thing we need is more traffic. (Oh, and if anyone does know the story behind this thing, please let us know.)
