FR Podcast and deep thoughts on Church signs

I drive past a church everyday on the way to the office. They have a sign and frequently change it's message. If I EVER see the person who's job description this falls under I will have to pull over and talk with them. They are terrible. I usually arrive to the office in a grumpy mood because of the asinine things I see posted there weekly!

I have been meaning to post a creed for my blog. A brief statement to my readers, (Grandma, and my church small group:), promising no trite Christianese crap that so many bloggers are guilty of. I have not done that yet. It is coming.

I must say that in advance so I don't upset all the home school (I was homeschooled so I can fly that joke!) moms wearing denim jumpers with Noah's ark animals needle stitched on . . . wow, I don't know where that came from . . . oh, yes I do!!! It came from the ladies who looked like that and told me that you couldn't run in church when I was a kid! That is a DUMB rule!

Anyway, I have an idea for all the churches out there who have plagued people driving by their houses of worship with STUPID quips. This just came to me. I am asking all of you to be real! Be funny, be inteligent, be compelling, say something worth reading! If you can't think of anything how about just, "JESUS LOVES YOU". I came up with one that felt real to me last night. Somebody put this on thier church and send me a picture of it please!

Here it is:
"Start attending church now. You'll get enough reps in by Easter we won't be able to guilt you."

Oh, and by the way: This post is to announce the new Foundation Red Podcast! Subscribe for more tangent like rantings such as the one above :)
(if you taught me in Sunday School, and you feel like I was describing you I just want to say . . . Thank you for giving to the Lord . . . for I am a life, that was chan ay ya anged . . . )

    Classic! Though I don't think you drive by my church our sign has been offensively bad at times. I have been promised by the senior minister candidate they're considering that this won't continue.

    Hey Johnny, I was at the Cinncinnati Believe and I was wondering if you could post the list of songs that we sang. I have Foreverandever, Shout Unto God, Friend of God, No One Like You, and Robert's songs, but what are the names of some of the other songs?? The Foundation Red podcast is awesome!! Guess what? Four weeks from when the podcast was posted is this Thursday!! Have you gotten the songs ready? I'm waiting to put them on my iPod...

    P.S. Where did you get your "WE ALL HAVE AIDS" t-shirt??? I love it!!

    Hey Johnny, Could you possibly put the songs that we sang at the Cinncinnati Believe on this website?? I know Look what you've done, Friend of God, No One Like You, Shout Unto God, and ForeverandEver are some of the songs....

    Hi Johnny. I wanted to use your chord charts for Jesus Paid it All with the cool ending you guys added. Do I need a copywright since it has that different ending? If so, can you tell me where to get it?

    Hey Johnny--I just left an anonymous message about the Jesus Paid It All song with no place for you to respond. I apologize if this isn't the way to approach this question--couldn't figure out anyplace else to contact you without myspace. My email is amanda-bazil@hotmail.com if you're able to respond. Thanks much!
