A Memorable Church Marquee

I don't know exactly what the purpose of church marquee signs are, so I don't know how one would evaluate if they really do or don't accomplish their purpose. If you think you know why churches put them up, I'm all ears (in an cyber-world type of way); feel free to post a comment.

This particular one had an impact on my life. So much so, that I parked, walked across the street and took a picture of it. Since you can't run spell-check (and actually spell-check wouldn't have caught this because no words are misspelled), it might be good to have a marquee editor come in behind the marquee "phraser." That might reduce the risk of this happening again.

The funny thing is that the other side has "in shape," while this side has "in sharp." Maybe they just ran out of "e's" and this was a creative way of just making do?

And is 'Execise' a spiritual discipline? Is it related to exorcism? I'm puzzled.

All the more reason NOT to have a marquee. Eventually, I'd put up something silly, too.

I was so amazed by "in sharp" that I didn't realize "execise" is not word!
