Going to Church tomorrow?

Church authorities removed this sign after they received complaints from the community. A little bit of bad judgement , I think.

p.s. I forgot to mention you photo. Is it one near you? Don't quite know what would happen if any of our local churches put that up!

:-) I like the sign :-) !

Hope no offence was taken at my blog today :-) ! It is a poem I wrote in 1998. It was published in

In Our Own Words - volume 2

A poem written about a man I live for / with.

Have been focusing a lot on my children lately, with the birthdays (thank you for the comments :-) !) and felt it was time for some focus on him and me :) !

For a more innocent ;-) post click here to see photos from my son's party today.

I think the sign was pretty funny! :)

Peggy said...

Some people are so thin skinned! The sign was funny. Okay, not in the best possible taste, but it was funny.

dabrah said...

I thought the sign was funny. I wonder who was offended...
I noticed your other blog, and wanted to as you, how do you set up a blog where more than one person can post?

Neva said...

But what a funny sign!!! some people are very creative.

rosemary said...

You gotta laugh though, right? As for the meme.....you are quite a woman...smart, well traveled, love your family and appreciate all that life has to offer....I'm glad we are friends.

Since I don't agree with the majority I just won't comment. lol.
When it snows in this part of Georgia lots of things just close down. Just found out we aren't having church tomorrow due to our icey roads.

Luke said...

funny sign! thats pretty harsh for a church sign.

LC said...

I find it rather funny my self, and true.

CanadianSwiss said...

Too funny! It made me giggle :)

These become in the name of policy and interests.

Isadora said...

:) it was funny you must say and if you understand that it was not humor but their innocence that got them into trouble. The real shame is on the community who obviously had a dirty mind and I bet, never made it to church.

When I taught in Nottingham I caught a bus to school. The route passed a church, ouside sign read, "If you are tired of sin come inside!" Underneath somebody had written, "And if you are not, call me on this number!" How Ilaughed each morning!

Ginnie said...

Since my dad was a preacher and had to always put up his own signs, I had quite the laugh. Even though I could never see him putting this up, I actually think he'd get a chuckle out of it. (People need to lighten up a bit!)

Aaahhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

You funny lady, you!!!

This is a great sign--but I then I suppose Christians might be offended by it.

d. chedwick bryant said...

perhaps I spoke too soon...
probably some Christians think it's funny.
now that I have read all of the comments!

Hilarious, it cheered my friends and I up. Anymore like this to brighten up a dismal day in the U.K.?

Peter said...

Humour or not (I would rather say “yes”), but this kind of signs and messages outside a church here in France (or in most European countries) is impossible to imagine. Much more conservative style here (but of course hardly anybody goes to church any more).

TorAa said...

Well, compared to other "advertisments" along the road, what's to be upset about this message?

madretz said...

hahahee! Thanks for the giggles!! That's a funny one. :D

Kerri said...

Looks like it probably had some "shock value". It is kind of funny...but I can't imagine a church putting that up.
