The More Things Change
Sunday morning at Mars Hill, rocking with the David Crowder Band. I was thinking of all the similarities to the church of my childhood:
1957: Elvis wears a white belt.
2007: Rob Bell wears a white belt.
1957: Neighbor named Jack Daniels has a goat.
2007: David Crowder has a Jack Daniels goatee.
1957: All the boys are wearing Keds.
2007: All the boys in the band are wearing Keds.
1957: One square dude on the platform.
2007: One dude of a square platform.
1957: Singing ". . . like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to Thee" and thinking, "What's a fetter???"
2007: Singing ". . . like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to Thee" and thinking, "What's a fetter???"
1957: Standing room only for all services.
2007: Standing in the room for all of the service.
1957: Greatest desire: to be right.
2007: Greatest desire: to be N.T. Wright.
1957: Don't forget the offering.
2007: Don't forget the "joy boxes."
