I recently ran across the copy for a marketing piece that our church ran several years ago. The honesty of the writing struck a cord with me even today. Talk about truth in advertising.
Here’s the text for the ad:
Sometimes, you just want to be you. No pressure to perform. No judgement to avoid. No expectation to meet. Just you being you.
That doesn’t happen very often, does it?
What if you could find a place where people cared about you unconditionally? What if there was a community who loved you during the good and grumpy times?
I wish this were an ad that promised you’d find that unconditional love and acceptance at One Life Church. The truth is, we don’t always deliver.
At One Life Church, we’re just a group of people trying hard to be real. Struggling to love God and care about others in the best way possible. Having our good and grumpy moments at different times. We are authentic, fallible and human.
This is your invitation to come and just be you.
