If anyone showed up at my church last night thinking that there might be a little “praying and praising” going inside, they received a rude awakening when they were greeted by this sign. Who needs a funny church sign generator when you have the real thing right there in front of you?
OK, by way of explanation, “Praise and Prayer” is the name of our upbeat Wednesday night “Peak of the Week” style devotional designed to recharge our spiritual batteries so that we can run (not walk or crawl) past “Hump Day” and on through the rest of the work week. This week, area schools are on Spring Break and many folks are out of town, ergo, no quorum for “praising and praying.” Still, you have to admit that this is at least as funny as some of these “Bulletin Bloopers.”
I bet some of you have some stories to tell when it comes to inadvertantly funny church signs, bulletin blunders, and sermon slips-of-the-tongue. Let’s stir up a little “holy laughter”–after all, it is “good for the soul.”
“A cheerful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”
