Put Your Faith to Work
A new ad campaign by The Episcopal Church uses the tagline "Put Your faith to Work." The idea is that youcan get actively involved in making a difference in your community through a community of faith. The campaign also uses the words:
Everywhere. Every Day.
The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
The website for the campaign is here: Put Your Faith to Work and you can see a video of a TV ad there. I think the ads are fine. Certainly working in the soup kitchen at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Rome, Georgia, was part of how Victoria, Griffin and I got more fully connected to the church and found some meaning in our lay ministry there. That said, I don't plan to use the new ad campaign locally. On the national ads alone, I probably wouldn't have found my way into an Episcopal Church. I would probably be a Mormon if not a Methodist, or perhaps I would worship at an Interstate Batteries distributor (see previous blog post: Powered by God's Love).
That's my take. What do you think?
