In November last year I was lucky to have some winter sun in Florida. I drove from Miami, through Key Largo to Key West and back again. On the journey I found an article in one of the local papers about how church signs and posters were trying hard to entice people into their churches.
They quoted a few examples such as:
Wrinkled with burdens? Come inside for a faith lift.
Where will you be sitting in eternity? Smoking or non- smoking.
I decided to look out for some of these church notice boards and checked the local papers in each place we stopped to see whether I could find any amusing ones.
I hope that you agree that I did just that! Check them out and see what you think:
Church Humour on Notice boards.
As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in schools.
Our churches are prayer conditioned.
Life stinks? We have a pew for you.
We are not Dairy Queen but we have great Sundays!
(For those of you who don’t recognise Dairy Queen they are an ice cream parlour chain)
An apology is the best way to have the last word.
Why didn’t Noah swat the two mosquitoes?
Whoever is praying for snow; stop it!
Staying in bed and shouting, “Oh God!” does not constitute going to
Lord, please make me the kind of person my dog thinks I am.
And my all time favourite:
The best vitamin for a Christian is B1.
I wonder what kind of signs or posters churches in our country could come up with.
Over to you!
Thought for the day: No matter what people tell you; words and ideas can change the world.
