Lady Gaga's "Edge of Glory": Five Possible Church Signs

Posted By on Mon, May 9, 2011 at 3:27 PM


"Edge of Glory," the third single from Lady Gaga's upcoming album Born This Way, debuted a couple minutes ago. Earlier today, over on our news blog, we brought you the latest sign from Maplewood United Church of Christ, on which Pastor Rick Meyer turned to Gaga's wisdom. In case he feels like mining Lady Gaga's newest for his next marquee, we've come up with a couple slogans the church could use. It feels apropos: between "Judas" and "Edge of Glory," Gaga is really hitting the religious symbolism hard this time around.

1. God's counting on a moment with you/God's counting on a moment of truth

2. Jesus knows it's right, even when society tells you it's so wrong

3. We're at the Edge of Glory. Is your soul ready?

4. Spend a moment talking to God: It's like an extended saxophone solo

5. Lighten up, Lady Gaga: We don't take ourselves as seriously as you do, and we're a church
