Church Sign Humor

Lakeland Baptist Church in Carbondale, Ill., uses short, catchy phrases with Bible verses on its sign as a teaser to whose who them, encouraging them to discover the meaning within the Bible itself. This holiday message sends readers to the Christmas story in Luke. 'An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people,"' part of the verses read. (AP Photo/The Southern Illinoisan, Adam Testa)
