Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says

Christianity with a sense of humour

Christianity with a sense of humour

I saw this sign round the side of St John’s in the City, in Wellington. I think it’s brilliant; funny and clever and understated and best of all, useful.

I’ve said before that I’m not really a Believer. I’d probably describe myself as a Presbyterian aethiest with catholic tendencies. I like the socialism of christianity and I absolutely love old churches and rituals and choral music. It’s just the notion of a God I have trouble with. That and any kind of humourless religion that thinks it knows best and wants to make everyone in it’s own likeness, preferably with maximum violence.

Life is ridiculous, humans are ridiculous, love and fear and hate are all ridiculous. So why not laugh?
