It Bothers Me!

I don't know why it does but there's this billboard I see every morning on my way to work and it so gets to me (for some reason).

The billboard advertises a religious conference and it's got the pictures of the speakers (all of them pastors). Two of them have posed with a hand each in a fist and showing a ring. Matter of fact, when I see the billboard, all I see is the rings (I don't even know what the conference is about and when it's gon be held cos I just see rings) and it bothers me. Is it some pastoral ring or something? (I just might be that clueless).

What's up with the rings (and they are huge too)?

  2. The Pimp ring!! LoL
    Isn't it interesting that pimps and these "bishops" love to flaunt their rings?

    For catholic bishops, the ring is a symbol of religious authority. The pope has his too. Back in the day, when you meet the pope or a bishop you kiss their ring. (I did when I got 1st communion).

    These days, any con man that can spell bishop buys a ring and gets on a billboard.

    1. lol @pimp ring.
      Right now everyone really is just a bishop. Yep, makes sense that when they can spell bishop, they become one lol.

  3. call it the latest fashion trend or the ringers ring like @DiDi puts it...I wonder too what the rings signify though. whatever it means for them, I hope it means well for the congregation.

    1. I've been wondering that too and it is a bit disturbing. Hopefully, it doesn't mean anything and like you said Priscy, hopefully, it means well for the congregation.

  4. Efua,
    I guess its their wedding ring and yes they're very huge.I share your concern. Appearance is very important. If you were to consider attending, the appearance of the pastors would have put you off. You might want to write to the host pastor your concern about the bill board. Sometimes they don't know that people take note of these little things.

    1. Yep, they don't seem to realise that. Honestly, I really get so very bothered whenever I see the billboard. Definitely, not going for the programme.
