Now that the song from Five Man Electical Band (or if you are younger – Tesla) is stuck in your head, I want to talk about church signs. Not the sign for the congregational name, but those marquee or digital message signs.
I have a love-hate relationship with these signs, although they don’t know it.
- I love that they draw attention to simple truths. I hate that the message is so short that sometimes it miscommunicates.
- I love reading them as I drive or travel. I hated when I had to help come up with messages.

Get active for God.
