Being billed for putting up a cross......

The Wood Methodist Church was informed in March by the town council in Dudley, England, that it owed an ''advertising fee'' of the equivalent of about $130 to put up a cross. (Town regulations specify that a ''cross'' is an ad for Christianity.) Check out the story here. This is scary!!! This got me to thinking. We already have advertising in every other aspect of life. Look at NASCAR-ads are all over cars and the drivers suits. You watch a sporting event and everything is sponsored. Watch out or our government officials will charge us for everything we do and we will have to start seeking sponsors. Here is a potential church bulletin: Prelude (sponsored by The Hammond Corporation-the best organs money can buy) Welcome (sponsored by E-Harmony.com) Children's Sermon (sponsored by Toys R Us) Music (sponsored by Lifeway Christian Stores) Prayer (sponsored by USPS "We deliver for you.") Offering (sponsored by Bank of America--"Higher Standards") Message (sponsored by UPS-"What can Brown do for you?) Invitation (sponsored by Hallmark) Benediction (sponsored by FedEx) Postlude (sponsored by Allied Moving Company) Any thoughts?

Now Kevin, you know, the message is sponsored by Rick Warren and Saddleback Church, and the music is sponsored by Integrity. Gosh, get it right. =)

Dorcas,

I like that!

Joe,

I'm sorry I slighted my friends from Mobile--Integrity!

The Message could be sponsered by Eugene Peterson's "The Message" but of course you would have to read your scriptures from his translation.

Bowden,

I can't believe I didn't think of that!

Joe,

Poor Rick. I just saw he is selling a book about how he studies the Bible.
