If it’s too hot…

As we drive to work every day, daughter Johanna and I entertain ourselves by reading the messages on church signs.  Being in the midst of the Bible Belt, we see quite a few.  We have some pretty lively discussions about what they mean, their tone (is this condescending, epecially to the non-churched folks?) and their sometimes hint of humor.  Last week, we saw something that made us both hoot with laughter.

The church sign proclaimed: HELL DOESN’T HAVE A THERMOSTAT.  In the very next parking lot, positioned so that it was visible along with the church sign was this admonition from the local volunteer fire department: CAUTION WHEN BURNING.

Do you think they were working together?
