And the award for Most Awkward Occurrence of Contextual Ambiguity in a Name goes to: the Overcoming Faith Christian Center. In fact, they're already a front-runner for next year's award in the same category as well, because as I was writing this post I saw on their web site that they use the phrase "adjectival participle" in trying to explain what their name means.

Yes, the title of this post is a pun, but not the obvious one. Think about it. You'll get it.

On a side note, here's a four-word phrase that promises unbounded excellence (and probably unbounded verbosity on my part): Bourne Trilogy on Blu-Ray.

They can also be nomitated for the "longest run-on sentence" award.

Just an excerpt from their website:

“Our God-given purpose and mission is to change the lives of people with the Gospel of Christ, thereby helping them to discover success in life; our heart and vision includes both the community and the world; our values are based on God's Word; and our central goal is to continually fulfill God's plan and vision by reaching a hurting world with the Gospel, as we stretch out beyond the four walls of the church, fulfilling Christ's commission to make disciples of all nations, that is, covenant men and women of God (Matthew 28:18-20).”

Note the single period at the end.
