Maybe there is such a thing as bad publicity

One nice thing about the small, traditional, "non-growing" parish I attend is that it's never turned any part of my body into ad space.

"Wow, nice . . . worship."

A similar garment with a flattering scoop neck, fitted sleeves, and trim cut reading "Trinity" would be somewhat less clear anyway, I guess.

Wow, deja vu ... ish. I just tossed that copy of the Witness away yesterday in disgust. As a matter of fact I can look down to my left and see it peeking up at me from under an empty water bottle and coupon clippings.

Oh man, I can see the teenagers wearing sweat pants w/the words in a very conspicuous spot! Really, what's wrong w/ a little evangelism done tastefully!

I actually know that woman personally.

Wait - I totally missed the boat. What's she craving? Jesus?

I can't read her shirt.

Lisa, it's in the current issue of the Lutheran Witness. The article is available online. I'd try to describe it, but it wouldn't be any fun since the whole thing defies parody.

I don't doubt that the woman in the photo is a pious person who wants nothing more than for people to know Christ. I just think she's been reading, marking, learning, and inwardly digesting the wrong books.

Did someone here complain to the Witness online? I can't find the picture on the website. I was curious too, to read what the rest of the shirt said.

Kind of a fluffy article, methinks.
