on a lighter note…

My last posts were a little on the heavy side. Admittedly, I have a tendency to react strongly and swing my pendulum wildly the other direction. So, to balance it all out, a little humor is in order.

Jeff Foxworthy has made a name for himself with the phrase, “…you might be a redneck.” I’m not being critical, I’m just poking a little fun with my own version, “…you might be an attractional megachurch.” For each one, you can click on it to read the true story. Really. I’m not making this stuff up!

  • If you have RSVPs for your church’s very first services, you might be an attractional megachurch.
  • If your worship leader leads the nominees for Dove Awards, you might be an attractional megachurch. If your budget has a line item for worship team clothing allowance, you might be an attractional megachurch. (true story, although I can’t find a link for it!)
  • If your church auditorium used to be the home of a professional athletic team, you might be an attractional megachurch.
  • If your church’s pipe organ is on the list of the world’s largest pipe organs, you might be an attractional megachurch.
  • If your church spent more than $1 million on its Christmas production, you might be an attractional megachurch.
  • If your church building tops the list of the largest churches in the world, you might be an attractional megachurch.

If you come up with some good ones, feel free to post a comment and add your own! It’s even more fun if you’ve got proof to back up your comment!
