I look at some of these churches and imagine the extraordinary ministries they could offer. They could rock their neighborhoods, if not the world. They have such potential in terms of person power and money, in terms of how they could exemplify resurrection. But they often don't call heads of staff with a fresh, exciting vision. They call people who look like they "should be" Big Steeple Pastors.The problem is that these men (and I intentionally exclude my sisters here) sometimes look like they came out of central casting in terms of hair, face, and height. They tend to have a doctorate - preferably from Scotland or Switzerland.
I, of course, am thinking of exploiting this. If ya got it, flaunt it, baby!
Here is our new evangelism slogan:
Come on over to First Pres., Elizabethton, to get a taste of Pulpit Candy. You'll keep coming back for more!
