A Toilet / Church Analogy

A couple of weeks ago, I was on my way into a public restroom stall when some lettering caught my eye on the bottom of the lid. Stuck to the lid was a single word...

... Church.

A flood of spiritual implications invaded my mind about the spiritual parallels of this one single sticker so creatively placed in a public bathroom stall. The Church in many cases is hyperbolically likened to toilet:
  1. The Church is probably one of the last things on the minds of millions of people, yet, it is a basic necessity.
  2. The Church is a place to flush all the crap (pun intended) out of your life as you leave your burdens on the alter.
  3. The Church is in almost every place (public or private) of life because it is made up of humans who work in all aspects of life.
  4. The Church is faithfully waiting, day in and day out. No run away toilets around here!
  5. The Church is dependable as no one has ever wondered if their toilet is going to hold out on them this time.
  6. The Church is made up of sinners who at times can clog up when they forget their real purpose.
  7. The Church comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, & colors; yet it serves one purpose.
