|Actual sign on Interpretation By Design Site.|
As it turns out, others have found the "Little Hope Baptist Church" sign humorous. I found a picture of the sign on another blog. What were the church planters thinking?
I should mention that it doesn't surprise me too much that a church would get named this if the largest "town" close to you is Pine Ridge, Arkansas (home of the famous Lum & Abner radio team). If you spent much time in Oden, Pine Ridge, or Pencil Bluff, you would probably think that you had little hope as well. It DOES surprise me that there other churches in the country named the same thing (Canton, Texas; Tuomsuba, Mississippi; Madera, California). I am certain that I can find others.
Am I delirious or does anyone else find this funny?
