Yuckiest Church Sign Ever

...here it is.

p.s. I've been getting a few emails about what's up with the light blogging. Combination of new baby (doing well!) and kids getting the flu, that's all. No worries, people, but I expect the blogging will pick up in a few weeks. In the meantime, I'll post when I can (once a week? more?).

My Father in Law wears a shirt that reads that quote on the front, and has Christ's bloody hands on the back...He has had more than one deep theological conversation with a teenager when wearing it...they can't help but ask what it means...too bad the sign didn't have a similar visual...it doesn't make much sense without the image.

Yikes!

My friend David was telling me about a church sign he saw recently advertising a Halloween book burning.

In my neck of the woods, that slogan with the image of the hand of Christ pierced with a nail (always through the wrist, btw--should I stop the next one and explain about the thenar furrow?) is an extremely popular truck rear windshield decoration. If I'm gonna be stopped at an intersection behind one, I'll take that motif over Trucknutz any day.

This works amazingly well in youth ministry, btw...

I'm surprised you haven't seen this one. I'm sure Joe catalogued it's crumminess at some point or another. Most attempts at witticism in churchsignerry succeed at being flippant, few as offendingly so as this. Chesterton and I have similar thoughts on flippancy.

Also, Joel.

I sent in a similar one to Crummy Church Signs -- I believe it was "Body Piercing Explained Here".

Major cringe....
