Ahhh Warm and Fuzzy Easter Church Signs-NOT


(Yes, if you smell something weird, it’s because there is a nearly sardonic mood here today. I snapped this photo myself last night.)

Image this Potential Backstory:

Been away from church for awhile? Thinking this Easter Sunday might be a good time to go and get back into the fold?

Are you ready for a spiritual reawakening? A kind of rebirth? A cleansing in your spirit?

NOT SO FAST. WE’LL HAVE OUR EYE ON YOU. So-WATCH your back, Slacker!

Maybe you’re thinking… “Lots of family members will arrive for a big dinner at 1:00 pm. Will there be time to do it all?”

Before you make your final decision, we at Christ Church have something to tell you:

Yes, suicide is an option, Traitors!

We know what you’re up to, and that won’t fly here.

You’re welcome, America!

(What are your comments on this Epic fail?)

I guess you could say, the irony of  human weakness against the stuff of hubris is just something that amuses me.

  1. That is horrible.

      I have to say, I can’t presume to know what the author of this message was (or wasn’t) thinking. All my efforts to pan for something gracious or Resurrection related from it, come up empty. I do think, if I was outside this fellowship, I would not feel welcome. And if I was, I think I would feel watched. But, maybe that’s just my baggage.

      Nevertheless, could we Christians, instead go by the adage: “When in doubt leave the sign blank” ? (and maybe “the sign” are also any words/message we might say)

      Or as Christians, we can stick with life-giving themes during springtime (for starters), such as, hope, forgiveness, rescue, rebirth, new life, healing, redemption, cleansing, and grace. Even—gasp–to other Christians!

      Easter as a “Smack Down Holiday” seems like completely missing the point.

      God, please fill us with your Love.

  4. My guess is that Judas left the Last Supper early so he could hand Jesus over to the Pharisees. I don’t think it’s a sign referring to suicide but I could always be wrong.

    Lesson? Don’t leave Jesus’ party early. (Or something like that…)
