AFP – Fri, Jul 6, 2012 Georgia’s powerful Orthodox Church has assured believers that the ex-Soviet state’s new electronic identity cards do not carry the mark of Satan after being petitioned by worried worshippers.
“The Holy Synod states that from the point of view of theological and ecclesiastical teachings, ID cards as they exist today do not represent the mark of the Antichrist,” the Church’s governing body said in a statement late Thursday.
Not that Georgia, but the one in Eastern Europe. But here in the US State of Georgia, or Tennessee, or Alabama or anywhere else in America, a church ID card can give access to a range of services.
Growing church memberships and community involvement have made church ID cards great solutions for parishioners and clergy alike.
Churches with programs for children and babies during normal service hours can use ID cards to ensure safe pickup after the classes and services are over. Church members help keep kids safe by accurately connecting parents to their children during Sunday school and time in the nursery.
Church ID cards can also be helpful for identifying church staff members, including youth group leaders, outreach workers and more. In large environments with large amounts of visitors, it’s also important to distinguish the leaders of the church.
Why stop there? Plastic cards with your service hours and location can be printed with a scripture passage on the back from this Sunday’s sermon! These can be placed at the local gas station or restaurant as long lasting reminders of your church.
