The Domestication of Transcendence, Again

Created by grownups@church.nuts.

p.s. I'm not making this up.

Gone until Friday....

Let me guess: you supposed to take the rocketship to Heaven?!

And to think I thought that our children's liturgy was bad!

Allen's Brain said...

Well, Intrepid, they probably felt that a Stairway to Heaven would send the wrong message.

I expect that they're just doing their best to demonstrate to young people that Jesus is fun and not old-fashioned (read "boring"). I'd like to see the inside of the place. I imagine that they've done the interior up in a sort of cartoonish Buck Rogers/ Flash Gordon motif. Computer banks with memory verses on their screens, maybe? "Worship will begin in T minus 5, 4, 3..."

But the faux email address MUST go!

Allen, I know I'm being cranky. But I agree the email is over the top. Playground for kids at church, fine. But is the playground the church? Does church have to be "fun"? (Not against it, but is that the first message you want to form in young people?)

Off to travel for work. See y'all Friday.
