If the thought of going to church doesn't exactly set your heart aflutter with thoughts of a rollicking good time, you haven't been to the Anglican Parish of Gosford in Australia. A progressive Christian community, the church is known for using humor and reason to get its message across.

And what is that message? According to Father Rod Bower, it's "radical hospitality," an approach to life that's inclusive and joyous. Nowhere is that spirit more evident than in the words Bower leaves on the church's Facebook page, and on its outdoor signs. These are a collection of some of the best.
