Day 22: Un official signs 

Not all street signs are official  – in the sense of being installed by the local or highway authority. Often  these unofficial signs advertised local events. Sometimes they concern lost cats and dogs, or keys that have been found (and not usually the other way round). This one here is providing a counter message to the prevailing media message that the ULEZ expansion was an intolerable  inconvenience for the average motorist. Instead this sign is celebrating the positive, life enhancing benefits of the traffic scheme. 

Prophets often have to shout out about the benefits of God’s ways to counter the ‘me, me, me’ message of society. That too must be our calling.

Wail, you who live in the market district; all your merchants will be wiped out, all who trade with silver will be destroyed.
Zephaniah 1:11

If you oppress poor people, you insult the God who made them; but kindness shown to the poor is an act of worship.
Proverbs 14:31
