At USA Today:

The Provo-Orem area of Utah is the most religious metropolitan area in the United States, a new Gallup poll shows.

A survey of about 190 metropolitan areas released Friday found 77% of Provo-Orem residents are classified as "very religious." That's based on respondents saying religion is an important part of their daily life and they attend religious services nearly every week.

From The Guardian:

The Russian military unveiled an unlikely new weapon in its arsenal this month – an army of parachuting priests. The unit of chaplains, who have joined the Russian Airborne Force to train in parachute jumping and vehicle assembly, will operate out of flatpack churches that can be airlifted in to wherever soldiers may be stationed.

The church could be mistaken for a standard-issue army cabin, taking the form of a khaki-coloured shed on wheels, were it not for the cladding of gilded icons and the majestic onion dome spire sprouting from its rooftop.

From The Lansing State Journal:

Grumpy’s Diner locks its doors at 7 p.m. most weekdays. But on Monday nights the South Lansing restaurant is starting to get crowded as the clock ticks towards closing time.  {...}

As servers bring plates heaped with onion rings, roast beef sandwiches, hamburgers and pancakes, Jeremy Kratky, standing near the window with his guitar, launches a worship service, inviting those gathered to join him in singing “Blessed Be Your Name.”

At The Guardian:

The shroud of Turin is to be shown on television for the first time in 40 years on Easter Saturday as a new claim that the four-metre-long linen cloth dates from ancient times proves its enduring ability to fascinate and perplex.

As what the Vatican described as his parting gift to the Roman Catholic church before he resigned, Benedict XVI signed off on a special 90-minute broadcast of the shroud that will take place from Turin Cathedral and be introduced in a brief preamble by his successor, Pope Francis.

At The Daily Beast:
The second Biblical revolution is—believe it or not—headquartered in Edmond, Oklahoma (pop. 83,000). That’s where a church called “,” a young tech-savvy Christian by the name of Bobby Gruenewald, and his pastor, Craig Groeschel, are changing the way people read holy texts. It’s called YouVersion—“the Bible app”—and it’s coming soon to a smartphone near you.
