    I think my favorite part of this is the fact that his tattoo is just “wayahiy.” Maybe to be really cool he will get “egeneto” on his other arm. Thanks for sharing! :-)

  • Landis

    Beautiful. Simply beautiful.

  • RJS

    Are you sure it’s satire?

  • Tim

    no confession and absolution
    no kyrie
    no hymn of praise
    no ot, psalm, epistle, gospel readings
    no gospel acclamation
    no creed
    no eucharistic prayer
    no benediction
    no sending into mission
    so i cannot identify with this satire
    so i am not cool at all!

    If this is satire, then much of the church is pretty funny week to week. Zing.

  • John H

    This is too funny. Thanks for sharing

  • Rick

    After the difficult and depressing “civility” discussion, this has really made my day.
    This could be called the Church Growth Liturgy.
    Thanks for posting it.

    Would have been a lot funnier if it wasn’t a copycat video of this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFicqklGuB0

  • Jeremy

    Copycat is a bit of a stretch, unless all parody is a copycat of that youtube video. That video isn’t particularly original either. :p
    Anyway, the Sunday video is funny. I think that’s my old church. :\

    I like it because it’s well done and it’s people (Christians) making fun of themselves. And I thought it was funny.
    I think laughing at ourselves is healthy.
    Laughing at others has questionable motives and easily crosses over into meanness. When the ‘satirists’ are not also the victims they are not sensitive enough about how much it hurts, and besides often propagate harmful half-truths by their lack of understanding of what they are attempting to satirize.
