Church Signs

Have you ever been driving down the road and had your attention captured by a saying posted on a church sign? You know, sayings like these:

Free Trip to Heaven... Details Inside!

Try our Sundays. They are better than Baskin-Robbins.

Come in and pray today. Beat the Christmas rush!

How will you spend eternity-Smoking or Non-smoking?

If you're headed in the wrong direction, God allows U-turns.

This is a ch_ _ ch. What is missing? (U R)

In the dark? Follow the Son.

Running low on faith? Stop in for a fill-up.

If you can't sleep, don't count sheep. Talk to the Shepherd.

I have a couple of questions about this whole enterprise. Where do churches get their sayings from? Are pastors around the country really that witty? Or is there a service that supplies funny sign messages? Why do churches use their sign space in this way? Is there any evidence that their humor brings people in the front door? And, finally, what is your favorite church sign saying?

While you're mulling these questions over, here's one that a friend of mine (who shall remain nameless...unless he outs himself!) came up with recently: Get your finger out of your nose and start picking the Lord.

Hi Guys, we have a litttle church here on rt 9 that always has good ones. Of course if I new there was a quiz I would have written them down. Anyway, the 1 that sticks out, over the hot summer:

"Hot Outside, Come on in. We're Prayer-conditioned"
