as seen on today's bike ride...



It strikes me as a bit cheesy, but I guess somebody is trying to be eye-catching. I can't help but wonder if this might start a competition with church signs using the cell phone theme.

The Episcopal church might go with: God: Is He in Your MyFaves?

The sign on the Baptist church could read: Jesus: He'll Never Stop Working for You.

The Presbyterians (who love potlucks) might use: More Bars in More Places (and hope that people make the connection with dessert bars)

Hmm... On second thought, I think it will just stop with the Lutherans.

Oh I dunno, some evangelist church may have something like:


Can you hear Him now? Good!

Counselor in Process said...

No, the Catholics would go for "More Bars in More Places!" Very funny.

Messed up, so delete was the only choice!

Maybe a visual application...on a billboard or something (the churches here in FLA love billboards)...

A person standing in prayer, with the whole back up team behind them...angels in hardhats, holding cell phones, tools, coming down from the clouds (instead of the helicopters)...

You have clever responses-- your own and others!
I'm just giggling at the tacky-but-fun conversation you've generated.
I want to be in your FavFive.

trend setter that i am (ha ha) i used a cell-phone theme in a sermon exactly a year ago... who knew it'd catch on?

Barbara B. said...

Counselor -- LOL!
Seeker -- excellent imagery!
Jiff -- yep, you're in MyFaves :)
hotcup -- wow, it took a year for your sermon theme to reach the west coast! :)

You realize, of course, that the fundamentalists will have proof-text messaging.

Barbara B. said...

rhc: "proof-text messaging" -- LOL!! that's really good!

Rev SS said...

Presbyterians would claim "less dropped calls" -:)

Barbara B. said...

rev ss -- although, you know our last congregation would have said, "Why use cell phones? These 'tin cans and strings' have always worked well for us." :)

Diane said...

Presbyterian Gal said...
