We're home -- the car is unpacked, but the suitcases aren't. Blah.
Anyway, here are some interesting church signs I saw this week and on the way home:
- Hanging on a Lutheran church in North Myrtle Beach was a banner that said, "Come and See." I liked that one. It said to me, "Leave your preconceptions behind and just come on in."
- One church had a sign out front that said, "We have room for one more family -- yours." Not my favorite. In fact, I didn't like it at all. Only room for one more family? I know that they don't mean this literally, but it just sounds exclusive to me.
- Speaking of exclusive, a sign on a Baptist church on the way home read, "Men of God wanted. Apply inside." Only men? Can I come if I bring sandwiches to feed the Men of God? What if I bring the butter?
- At a crossroads on the way home were two United Methodist signs -- one pointing each way -- Faith UM church one mile to the right and Hope UMC three miles to the left (I made up the names). Dueling UM churches.
