nailed it...

I know it's been a long time since I last posted, but let's get things going again. If you get the chance, you gotta take a look at this video clip from "King of the Hill." It is frighteningly funny and all too real. Does it grab you? Make you think? Make you cry or just make you laugh? I'd love to know.

I'm not really sure what to think. Of course, the part of me that wants to hate mega-churches rises up. Yet, they do a good job at what they do. Of course, I resonated with the comment of the daughter who talked about how they had a good church that they has deserted. Hmmmm.... Damn! Why did you have to show me this video?

Wow! That was so realistic, especially for Texas. I came from a church (I will let you guess which one) who had been told they had to get 1000 in a service by a certain time. Funny thing is, the pastor was from Houston. Another friend of mine from the same area said a lot of the churches in her area were referred to as Six Flags Over Jesus! Anyhow, it divided the church and many of us have never recovered.
As far as mega-churches, they are not for everyone, and I don't think they are inherently evil. But if you do not hook up into some kind of small group, you could get away with not knowing anyone, not serving, not being known and never growing. I think the same can be said for any sized church, though. You have to let people know you, and the Greeter Dude in the King of the Hill video at least makes you open to the idea because of his friendliness.
