Sunday Morning

Wednesday, May 12, 2010
Yeah it's been making the rounds on the blogs, but I wanted a copy here to come back to later on.

"Sunday's Coming" Movie Trailer from North Point Media on Vimeo.

Church has become all this and more, and yes there should be a discussion of it at leadership levels.

But for this Sunday here in Malmo it's just me pickin a few songs and preachin a few words.


Thanks Brad.


  1. I like your preaching and song pickin

  2. This is perfect. I love how one of the first guys looks very Mark Driscoll-ish.

  3. I wonder if Becky would have noticed if one of the first guys looked like Jamie Arpin-Ricci? Actually the preacher reminded me of Rob Bell a bit.

    I'd say this is the natural next stage of the Hill$ongs video I posted a while back - just a bit more detailed, a bit less nasty. The commercial worship as concert is something that I increasingly want to resist in the church. The need to prove our coolness by having tats or swearing in church is another symptom of missing something too.

    It brings me back to the question: where are the ordinary men and women, the 'vanilla Christians' who will just live the life, walk the walk and just be Jesus in their generation? Or do we all have to claim to be sinners like everyone else but forgiven because salvation is just a nice idea for when we die?

  4. I find it interesting to read the emotions that this video has brought out. There are those that love it as well as those that say it is an example of what is wrong with church's today. For me, it is a humorous parody of a particular style of worship. Really, we could do (or has already been done) a parody of any style of worship we have come acustomed to using. This is just one way that is being used to bring people into worship of God, not unlike the pub tunes from the 17th and 18th century that used different words with the familiar tune. Like it or not, we all use some "formula" of worship. Some way of getting our heart in tune with God. Maybe by admitting to the formula we remove the stigma behind it and allow ourselves to actually worship deeply.

    Just my 2 cents.


I'm moderating all the comments these days.
