The Dueling Baptists

We have two baptist churches down the street from our house and for months now I have been meaning to showcase their creative signs in a series entitled, "The Dueling Baptists". I tell you, I am impressed at the way those baptists can uplift with both deep thoughts and humor! The signs have said such things as, "Walmart isn't the only saving place". See? Great!

I apologize for all of the grand signs I have missed sharing with you! And now, when I finally get around to implementing my plan, one of the baptist churches isn't participating the way they ought! For weeks now they have only had times posted for a fantastic shindig they were holding (believe me, I know it was fantastic-- I heard the '80's music they were playing!). Anyway, I was just about to give up hope, when I noticed that the community church down the street had joined the fray!

So, I hereby give you the first installment of the Dueling Baptists (sorry to the not baptist community church-- but I like the name!):

In the pink corner...(brace yourself for this one)....


..and competing in the maroon corner...


Seriously, I love these! Every time we drive by these churches, I crane my neck in anticipation to see what their signs say-- smiling gleefully at each new thought I see, dropping my chin to my chest in disappointment when there is nothing new. I'm really kind of bummed that my church doesn't have a sign. Thank goodness for religious diversity!

I've seen quite a few of the "wag more . . . " bumper stickers around town here.

I hope you keep posting these--it's way better than the photoshopped dueling church signboards that was making the rounds on FB a while back.

I love those. We actually have a baptist church not too far from our house, and every time I drive on that street I drive with some serious anticipation. My FAVORITE thing they ever posted on their marquis was "The lottery is a tax on people who are bad at math."

I think that you should make a funny sign for the front of your chapel. It could look like a giant scrapbook page as an ode to the RS.

Oh, Pixie! I actually did what might be called a guffaw when I read your comment! That would be hilarious!!
