(Temporary) signs of the times

Email

I drove by our neighborhood nursing home, Emmanuel, recently and saw a new sign that told me it's not Emmanuel now, it's Ecumen. They've gone from a name from the Bible (meaning "God is with us") to a name that sounds like an insurance company. Reminds me of when Lutheran Brotherhood became Thrivent. Even before the switch to Ecumen, the name was altered to Emmanuel Community.
