Sign language: Friend request

Some church signs – like the famous St Barneys sign (that prompted a tit for tat with a pub) – start discussions amongst people, which I am sure they’re meant to do.

Some are stupid and do the church (locally and universally) a disservice.

I remember around election time in Brisbane a few years ago a church had “give to God what is right not what is left”.

Sadly I can’t tell if I like these or not – what say you readers?

From here.

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the pastor of City South Presbyterian Church, a church in Brisbane, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus. If you'd like to support his writing financially you can do that by giving to his church.

  1. I like it, in a "I'm glad I saw it but I'm not sure if I'd want it associated with any ministry I'm involved in" kinda way.

  2. Perhaps I'm too critical, but it just seems a little bit too 'try hard' to me. I assume that these types of signs are supposed to appeal to the 'youth of today', which is fine.. but I think that a lot of non-Christian young people would see it as a lame attempt to be 'cool' and 'hip'. Cool people probably don't use the word 'hip' anymore, which probably negates my argument, but you know what I mean.
