Bringing the Gospel Message to the Streets

August 24, 2010
Some call it David versus Goliath.
GODSQUADBut Father Luke Strand dismisses that description.
The priest from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee has been asked by Best Buy to remove a God Squad logo from his black Volkswagen Beetle.
The electronic retailer says the logo is a copyright infringement on its logo for the Geek Squad, the company’s technical customer service division.
Father Strand, pictured with seminary classmates shortly after being ordained deacons in 2008, complied with the request and, along with Best Buy’s assistance, is working on redesigning his God Squad logo.  After all, he doesn’t want to completely abandon the opportunity to bring the Gospel message to the streets.
“I just found it to be a phenomenal opportunity to really spark those conversations with people who might be questioning their life, want to talk a little about where they are in their relationship with God.” says Fr. Strand.
And logo or not, you will still be able to identify his car from his personalized license plate: GODLVYA.
