Signs of the Times: Funny Churches
Laughing at church signs
How many times have you passed by a church on your way to work and wished you had a camera? You are in luck as I found the guy who did.
Sometimes, they are laugh out loud funny; other times they are too preachy and a turn-off. Anyway you look at it those signs are designed to attract attention, get their message out and market that church group of people seeking new members.
Well, today I was in luck! As I was wandering through flickr on my many searches I happened upon this photographer who did just what I and a whole lot of other people have been meaning to do but didn’t: photograph those crazy funny signs!
New Style of Pastors
It really is a “sign of the times” that a new breed of pastors are taking over the pulpit. Many of these guys have a real sense of humor and a handle on the newer technology. Many are determined that the church environment won’t be left behind, and we aren’t talking about The Rapture, folks.
Take a look and get a grin today! Lord knows we all could use as many funnies as we can get right now in these uncertain times. Who would have ever thought The Church could be so funny? In some cases I’m sure they were deadly serious but somehow came off humorous anyway. You decide. The first photo is in honor of our parent company Google. Look, free advertising!
Does Life stink? well...
Now here's a new twist on fussing at people not coming to Mass who decided driving all that way for 45 minutes wasn't worth it.
From fussing at you to the very helpful for your health approach
Bribe 'em; now that works with the younger generation!
Bald-faced truth with a sense of humor
Talk about the-get-your-money-back guarantee!
The how-dense-are-you approach
Now here's a hip pastor who's figured it out
"Do ya think?" these guys are not happy with technology or just natural philosophers?
A bit weird but trying to be encouraging to others
A rap against us open-minded types
The ongoing war of the fundamentalists vs. the atheists: sigh...
The Baptists seem to really like this saying
It's all about ATM convenience
Blatantly obvious, no sense beating around the flaming bush.
Your pet knows best; show the world the same! approach
Warning sign and complete with flashing lights of "God will get you for that!"
We had a good time, didn't we?! Until the next time on a Thursday I'm so bored I start writing crazy stuff...
Another great link to religious humor
Update: Found this little gem from a fellow writer at HubPages you will enjoy! I've long known and observed over time that Abba Elohe (Father God) has always had a great sense of humor. He tends to specialize in decades long jokes and the irony of life. Jesus is the dry wit guy; more about Him later.
Here's Peter's link which is worth the read:
