On my way to the photo lab all the way up in New Hope, Minnesota, I pass by Redeemer Lutheran Church.  On the west side of their building they have a sculpture of Jesus with his arms outstretched.  I know that this is supposed to be your typical crucifixion reference, but to me it always seems as though Jesus is giving me a shrug:

The building itself it pretty fantastic.  Built in 1965, and even has a little bit of that New Formalist architecture I was talking about earlier:
