CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND – Cardboard can be holey. And in New Zealand it can also be holy.

A church in the town Christchurch was built mostly of plastic and cardboard.

It seems wacky, but after countless earthquakes in the area (and lots of prayer, no doubt) the cardboard cathedral made sense.

It took two years to build and cost much more than can fit in a donation basket at $5.5 million.

That’s a lot of tithing.

It does look pretty fancy, though, for a bunch of boxes.

And when it comes to worship, you can be anywhere, right?
