Stephen Colbert makes me happy. There aren’t too many folks who can make recession humorous.
Wouldn’t it be liberating to have a time in church services for “The Word” and it referred to a Colbert-type segment rather than Scripture?
The preacher could be preaching but the projection screens show little comments along the way that help to clarify what is really being said. There are several preachers that could really benefit from this. Actually, it would be the congregation that would benefit.
Preacher man says “God says, ‘love your neighbor’.”.
Screen says “Unless he is gay… or Muslim… or Jew … or a Democrat …. or …”
Preacher man says “Be in the world but not of it.”
Screen says “By in the world, we mean in homogenious gated communities where we can all be schooled together and protected from the evils of the world and public education until Jesus comes back.”
I’m in a sarcastic mood tonight. Humor me.
What “word” would you offer to more accurately define sayings that we hear in our churches?
