Sunday slogan

last week i did a sunday slogan, and since i collected a few over the past few weeks, heres another one! taken during the same trip last saturday. they dont cease to amaze me.... in fat, whenever we drive past a church, im hoping to add another one to my collection, and im disappointed when they dont have a sign out front. sometimes theres still hope, i can see the sign from afar, but coming closer i see it only gives the hours for sunday prayer or reads "all are welcome" (how boring!).
the one above is a very bad one, i think. how on earth can they write that?! how does it make people who are maybe not so into god (or not at all) turn to him? 
because i have so many questions regarding these signs, i google around a bit this week, but couldnt find much on wikipedia (bbuuhhh). i did find this site where they posted the most hilarious church signs (and many more weird ones in the comments). some of them i have seen myself around here, in the exact wording, so i do think churches share them. still dont know how this exactly goes though... perhaps priests make a lot of road trips and just note down the ones they like, and then use them for their own signs. hmm, but they could also just use the internet. a weekly email with the best slogans? a website from which they can pick? (would it be for free or is there this full time slogan write?) maybe...

Yes I love the yellow house behind too, but the signs are awfull, so much arrogance and self-satisfaction is disgusting.

hihi, yes, i also liked the yellow house. i preferred it much more than the church.... :) the only reason i would go in there is to tell them that their church sign is really awful and an attack to humankind... :)

The house makes this photo come to life, but. . .Hmmmm. Don't trust yourself? I can't even begin to address that one! But your post reminds me of one I saw and liked in Victoria, B.C. that I'll have to post.

Propaganda!!

If this sign is on a private area, I guess living in a country with democracy it is legal to put up a sign like this.

But I could have signed my name under "biebkriebels" comment!!

I could go on and on about this, but lets just say that some people are nuts.
