Direct mail from God...


Way back in the day, Moses got the call from God via tablets and a burning bush. But these days God comes to you courtesy of the U.S. Postal Service. (What, no texting on from on high?) This slick little piece of direct mail advertising from Northway Church showed up in our mailbox just in time for Easter. It's an ad for Easter services and a four week series on "The Power of Love". Hmm... the gospel according to Huey Lewis and the News?


Why stop at four weeks of TV-show themed seminars?

Week 5 — "Cheers" (how to meet people in the social scene while still married)
Week 6 — "Perfect Strangers" (the art of the anonymous hook-up)
Week 7 — "Bosom Buddies" (guest speaker, Eliot Spitzer)
Week 8 — "The Price Is Right" (how to keep your inevitable divorce settlement as close to 50% as possible without going over)
