Zip-Line Pastor Entrances and Skyfall Worship Music

Well,I thought I had seen it all. Does this zip-line entrance into church by Pastor Rod Parsley qualify as “by any means” or is it a step too far?

What’s next? Pat Robertson’s hair catching on fire while he records a commercial for the 700Club — while moonwalking?

As a pallate cleanser, try out this stirring rendition of “Skyfall” — by the Granger Community Church worship band. In church. Took me back to my post Why I’ve Stopped Singing in Your Church.

Big HT to A Little

What do you think? A step too far or is it all OK if James Bond finally gets into church?

After all, The World Is Not Enough. And we should go To Russsia, With Love to turn Dr. No into Dr. Yes, even if we have to preach The Living Daylights out of them. Sorry, but perhaps the gospel wasn’t meant For Your Eyes Only.

    The zip line incident was actually very spur of the moment – and it was awesome! And if you would watch the entire service and see the ‘spirit’ in which it was done, it was pretty cool. It wasn’t like a ‘grand entrance’ or anything like that.

    • Do you have a link to the video? I would love to see it in context?

    • Spur of the moment? It takes some time and forethought to set up a zip line, doesn’t it?

  • Several years ago, a new family in our small community visited our church, and during a follow-up pastoral call, I was told that our church was too traditional and that they were looking for a church like the one they had worshiped in before moving here. They rhapsodized over their former pastor who “flew” onto the “stage” on a zip line while wearing a Superman costume. No kidding.

    • Why am I hearing, “We’re men! We’re manly men!! We’re men in tights!!!”

      Sorry. Likely just offended some parishioner somewhere.

      And don’t they know how deadly capes can be? What kind of example is that for the children?
