Have you noticed?

Advertising is literally everywhere!

Is it just me or have you noticed a new level of advertising.  With the complete saturation of advertising in all of the “normal avenues” advertisers are now looking for new and unique places to stick advertisements and possibly reach new markets.

Here are just a few examples of what I am talking about.

(Yes, I took these pictures with my I-phone)

Here is one thought and a question about all the non-stop advertising that we face every day. OK, it’s no secret that we live in a hyper consumer culture, and much of our common language and experiences today stem from our absolute immersion into this culture of capitalism. And, because of this “culture of capitalism” most of us have developed a “consumer-radar”, if you will, that first assumes that people are trying to sell you something. My question is this: Do you think this “consumer-radar” affects the ability of people to hear the message of Jesus? Is there a cure?

Have you seen any unique places where advertisers have posted their messages? Please, feel free to take a picture and send it to me so that I can add them to the blog.

Also, would you do me a favor, if you see something, anything, over the course of your day that looks interesting… church signs, posters, funny people, things you read on-line, you-tube videos, t-shirts, bumper stickers, real life stories, sad stuff, happy stuff, christian stuff, (No Justin Beiber stuff please)…please email them to me so I can pass them on! Pictures are good!

Oh, and by the way, I have two blocks of adverting at the top of this blog I will sell you at a great price! (lol)
