Here are some dumb sayings used by churches, followed by catty reactions.
“Everyone is welcome.”
Hmm. Not here. We tend to turn people away at our church if we don’t like the way they look or smell.
“. . . take communion”
I get that words take on new meanings and associations, but communion really isn’t something you can “take.”
“At Central Church, Jesus is Lord.”
At my church, I like to think of Him as mere absentee CEO and non-coercive Advisor.
Maybe folks could find better uses of printer/copier toner and signs in front of the building!
