Church signs I

One of the many things I’ve found unique and interesting about living in the South is the large number of churches—and in particular the clever messages that crop up on their road-side signs. In California, I don’t remember passing that many churches and I don’t remember the signs being that interesting. But here in the South, I pass seven different churches on my seven-mile trip home from dropping my son off at his mother’s morning out program (which, I guess, you could count as church #8). Of those seven, two in particular usually catch my eye—including this church, which changes its message weekly. This one is on their more serious side, though sometimes they are quite witty. Truth be told, I look forward to seeing a new one each week. It reminds me of the “Daily Bread” sliver I used to draw from the loaf each morning as a kid.
