Silly church signs can make you think

I have always found the little sayings churches put on there signs trite, silly and a number of other things. Becoming Orthodox has only increased that feeling. But ever once in awhile I run across a sign that still has those characteristics but makes me go huh that is pretty funny and ironic.

Infancy Gospel of James

I realize that I am posting this a little later than I usually do, but better late than never. Here is a link to the Infancy Gospel of James in pdf format.
