The church is a broken institution, made up of sinful people. And that's exactly the draw. We don't have to be perfect. We don't have to clean ourselves up. We come as we are. That doesn't mean we wallow in the dirt and the muck, but it shouldn't keep you from coming in the door.Check it out and think about it :: Link
Sometimes that might mean the marketing sucks. Quite frankly, it all sucks. Church is a ragtag bunch of losers, you and me both. Which is why we so desperately need God.
When it comes to the marketing, the flyers, the postcards, the sign out front -- all we can do is our best. And maybe our best sucks, which isn't exactly where I was going with this, but it's an interesting thought. If our best does suck, let's be honest and open about that. Church marketing that does the best it can, that's honest about its shortcomings, that truthfully presents that particular congregation, can't possibly suck.
