VUI Church sign project
One of the things I learned in my travels as a road closing attorney that traveled around the state of South Carolina was that so many of South Carolina's churches had interesting sayings on the signs out in front of them. Some offered profound wisdom. Others offered corny and cliched remarks. Some had a mix of both. One thing I saw over all those years on the road was that people in small little churches often had leaders in their churches who made remarks on the signs out front.
That is why the crack staff of Voting under the Influence and I have decided to ask for contributions from the public of sayings on church signs. Your favorite church saying on a sign will be published here if you follow some simple rules. First, you must submit a digital picture of the sign with the saying. With that saying, you must tell us the church name and where in South Carolina that church is. If you want your name to be credited, let us know. We will run the picture and church name with or without your name, it is up to you.
Please send the pictures of the church quote, the name and location of the church, and any remarks you might want published to firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the end of the year, the best submission of church sign and comments will gain a small donation from the crack staff of Voting under the Influence to the church that is featured.
All churches that have a sign comment photographed and sent will have such presented on this blog.
We at Voting under the Influence want to merely show another part of South Carolina culture that often gets missed by the mainstream media and highly paid political operatives who seem more concerned on what the ESPN reporter at a Clemson or Carolina game is wearing. We want to show the real life of South Carolina.
Again, you can help us. Email your church sign sayings photos, with location and comments to email@example.com
