First off, sorry for the week long absence from this blog, and sorry that this post won’t be very substantial – I was gone from Friday through Monday on a young adult retreat in Asheville, North Carolina (it was great!), and I’m still trying to catch up on work.
Several of the blogs I follow have posted this video, a parody of a lot of contemporary Christian worship services. I’ve only been to a few of these kinds of services, but the video seems pretty spot-on (and pretty funny).http://vimeo.com/11501569
The video was actually put together by North Point Church, which does have this kind of worship – and which the New Church has been looking to as a possible model for outreach, especially in New Church Live. Whatever the merits may be of this kind of service, it’s worth knowing that it’s become prevalent enough that it is ripe for parody.
