Word of the day "Tankstelle für die Seele"

epd reports that a second motorway church may be inaugurated on the A9 in Germany. This time it is a Roman Catholic Tankstelle für die Seele that is being planned. The phrase made me smile as I'm sure someone had alot of pleasure coming up with it. "A filling station for the soul" would be a translation I suppose, I like the idea, perhaps because I have spent most of the day beginning to sort out various medical matters. I could do with a filling station for both body and spirit!
