SIGNS IN NEW YORK
Religion has a very different place in people’s lives than barely half a century ago. It used to be commonplace to go to church every Sunday and barely a soul grumbled about it. But nowadays, more and more individuals are acting like Homer Simpson and wondering if it wouldn’t be better to sleep in and stay toasty in bed.
Well, one place that certainly knows how to get the attention of both the faithful and non-believers and make them laugh and think, is Wantagh Memorial Congregational Church in New York. It uses hilarious (and sometimes deep) signs to make comments about religion and the world.
Pastor Ron Garner of the Wantagh Memorial Congregational Church explained the inspiration for the witty signs and talked about the role of religion in the 21st century.
“Our church is located on a very busy street in Wantagh. I want to convey to the public that Christianity doesn't have to be staid. I also want to convey that people who follow Jesus are not called to be apolitical but are called to take social justice issues seriously. We are a small congregation but we have new members who came because of our signs.”
So, let's check out some of these signs.

Kind atheists over hateful Christians. Indeed. Very profound.ReplyDelete
So inspiring, Clancy. And so very true.ReplyDelete
Yep, pretty much on the mark, Viv.Delete
I like some of the signs very much. And you are right, some, in their simplicity, are profound.ReplyDelete
Some cut to the chase very profoundly.Delete
