Can Anyone Decipher This?


There is a Baptist church just down the road that sometimes uses its sign to say some…interesting…things. Sometimes, though, their signage just leaves me scratching my head, and the latest lettering has been up maybe two weeks. I’ve driven by it a couple dozen times. And I have utterly no idea what it means. None. And I have a Master’s degree and have pastored for 20 years. But I can’t figure this out; can you help? Here’s what it says:

The steps that lead to any church are a part of God and should be tried a little more often.

    If you were to take the wording as written [how else, right?] it is pantheism. I’m pretty sure that’s not what they intended 😀

    I think they are saying that people need to take those step into church more often, maybe it is also suggesting that no only do this durring the holidays but through out the year.

    I’m with Shane on interpretation. They’re speaking to the holiday folks. That or they’re taking a Tolkien approach…
    “The Road goes ever on and on
    Out from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    Let others follow it who can!”
