Since this blog’s inception I’ve had a link to Crummy Church Signs in the “You Need to Read” section to the right. It was with a tremendous amount of sadness that I logged on a couple of weeks ago and read of Joel’s decision to discontinue that blog.
Although I’ve never met Joel, I shared his combination of frustration / horror / humor over the fiasco that is known as the ch__ch marquee. (What was missing from that sentence? U.R.) I’ve long said that giving a church a marquee is like giving a crocodile a baby…eventually something is going to go horribly wrong.
While I’m sad to see Joel go, I’m glad he’s going to leave the blog archives up for a while, so go there now and get a final dose of disgust with the way we market our brand of Christianity to a watching world.
But before you do that, check out this picture I snapped last summer and never got around to sending in to Joel…
