Driving through town, I see interesting church names. Some of them crack me up…
Believer’s Church — ok, so everyone who doesn’t go there is not a “believer”?
Real Church — so, if you don’t go there you’re not real?
Guts Church — so, if you don’t go there you don’t have any guts? (Or, you just don’t want to be around biker types and a pastor who screams and a heavy metal praise band?)
Anthem Church — is this a church dedicated to Ayn Rand? I wouldn’t be surprised if a fundagelical church in the Bible Belt did that.
Audacity Chruch — what, is this named after “The Audacity of Hope” by Obama?
Cowboy Church — but I don’t have a horse! (As a side-note, at the last middling snow storm, they cancelled. They evidently never heard of the phrase “cowboy up!” Our parish was open that day.)
Will Rogers United Methodist Church — I thought churches were supposed to be named after holy persons?
_______ Bible Church — we are a little bit better than you because we follow the bible. (Or, do you worship it?)
St. Antony Orthodox Christian Church — my church. Part of the overall Orthodox church. And, yes, if you aren’t a part of the Orthodox church, you’re not orthodox. I’ll own it.
