You Said It: Comment Roundup

May 2, 2007 by

Sometimes here at Church Marketing Sucks, you say something and we think, “Man, why didn’t we say that?” Sometimes it’s a great story of agreement. Sometimes it’s a sharp quip. Sometimes it’s a harsh rebuke. It’s most always more interesting than what was said originally. So here we are with a solid evidence that commenting is good. Enjoy some great comments we’ve seen on recent posts:

  • “When I did children’s ministry, especially outdoor. Mascots were the best ‘marketing’ I could do; kids remembered my lion as he walked the streets handing out balloons and invites to our street event. Every week we used the mascot to go out and bring the kids in for our street event.” – Tim Bednar on Church “Mascots” For Children’s Ministry
  • “I get my gossip from the pews … Feels more hot off the press that way.” – Drew on Understanding Attack Blogs

  • “Wow … Why is “diversity” always linked to race? What about the disabled? (I am) What about cultural diversity meaning accepting Metallers, Punks, Gothics and Rivetheads, Emo fans, whatever, into the church with out trying to ‘clean them up’ and get them to do church like you, but to encourage them to play out their faith where they are most relevant, in their Culture.” – Craig on Diversity in the Pews
  • “To the contrary, I think a book by that title would do far better! ;-)” – Brad on Help Wanted: Good Editors
  • “Sounds great! … I’ll ask my wife if it’d be okay to visit and bookmark such a site.” – Mean Dean on Church for Men
  • As an unitentionally appointed critic of billboards … I’ve got to say that I love this. It speaks to benefit for the customer … instead of just going for the cheap bump. Love the tag line.” – Kirk Longholder on How To Achieve 277% Growth
  • “Totally agree! I’m falling in love with every Google does.” – Dave on 9 Ways to Use Google Apps in your Church Marketing
  • “Ha! Very nice. I’ll try to remember to discuss from now on. ;)” – Gloria on Meet Joshua Cody, CFCC Intern

There you have it. Join in on the discussion (unless you’re a spamming robot, in which case, we’ll pray for you, but don’t comment). We’d love to hear what you think. After all, we’re here to start dialogues, not preach sermons.

    HA!
    I made it! and a very short list it is too. Luckily, though, I did not make it for one of my “drama queen” moments (as would have been my guess had someone told me I made a list such as this).
    I have been forced to be constantly vigilant in keeping control of my online comments in the past. The littlest things said can sometimes spark the biggest controversy.
    I think it’s interesting how we sometimes feel more free to say things online when in reality online comments are probably the MOST public. Anyone can see them and copy and paste… There’s a whole article about this in … I think it’s Psychology Today. I was reading it in B&N just the other night…. And now I’m rambling and not controlling my comments.
    Somebody stop me.

    How does one vote for Alex Fear’s comment at the URL below to show up in your next such list? I nearly split a seam!

    We’ll keep the vote in mind, but ultimately we just check out what’s been said and highlight things we particularly liked – nothing too scientific. Thanks!
