The Election inspires All Saints Petersham





The scale of the decoration at All Saints Petersham is impressive and shows that if they struck a theme which would genuinely appeal broadly to gen y or mosiacs then they'd make a real splash! The trouble is the Jesus is either Liar, Lunatic or Lord is way to intellectual a faith argument... I suppose they'd argue if you join the All Saints family you'll experience faith in action through acceptance, inclusion and enthusiasm for the Lordship of Jesus BUT in a drive by impact MOST punters will see it as an exercise they're just not that interested to engage in... or is that just me?

The display is completed by a set of white vinyl polling booths on the side lawn as well!

Clever, ernest, creative and appropriately large... just maybe missing the mark with the audience!!

Jesus Loves Osama


Biblically correct PERHAPS!!
Sensible, credible, accurate, helpful, funny and noticeable.... YES noticeable!!

The braniacs at Outreach Media have scored some publicity for their client churches with this poster... their Telstra one wasn't bad but most of the rest state the bleeding obvious!!

"Thank God You're Here"


Things have been quiet on the clever church noticeboard front until this one appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald on Wednesday 31st January.... and due to another story will receive even more publicity for the rest of this week!!

"Thank God You're Here" is the Working Dog produced improv drama show that's been such a hit for Aussie Network Ten in 2006!! The show involves competitors/actors/celebrities/comics walking through a door where a skit unfolds from the first line "thank God you're here".

Participants are marked on humour, cleverness and how they handle the curve balls they receive... very funny show and I've blogged elsewhere about its use as a youth group activity!!
