“Buses, bus stops, taxis, advertising hoardings: these are the new “virtual” pulpits of British religion.” (Times Online, 8th June)
The intention in this advert as described by ChurchAds.net (and to us at the launch of #cmn10) was:
The Intention of This Poster
Francis Goodwin, a founder member of ChurchAds.net, said: “This is the kind of thing proud parents-to-be show their friends and family — passing round the scan of the baby.
“Our poster reflects this new way of announcing the news of a new arrival and places the birth of Christ in an ultra-contemporary context. It offers a fresh perspective on the birth of Christ — creating anticipation and alluding to both His humanity and divinity.”
How are the press representing it?
The press are picking up on comments made by Terry Sanderson of the National Secular Society ““But it is also the kind of image widely used by anti-abortion campaigners and I hope that the Church of England isn’t trying to use its Christmas poster campaign to make a political point” Times Online, 9th JuneTweet
I’m not sure that I’m bothering with Christmas Cards this year (I usually do an e-card, and then a handful of cards for people who are not online/who I won’t see… otherwise where do you stop with the writing of cards – it just goes crazy). Christmas is about more than cards, food, etc. (30 seconds to explain what I believe), but I can recognise Christmas for many in these cards! Me… this Christmas I’ll be cooking dinner for many people in a hotel in Lauterbrunnen… in return I should get to meet some interesting people… and a day on the slopes! Want to buy these cards from Etsy?Tweet
