Cute, Real Cute

I hate it when churches try to be cute. In fact I find it down right offensive. A billboard in town is advertising (ugh) one of the local so-called Lutheran churches and a "look at what we are doing" Live Nativity Show. The focal point of this program? "Jesus- king of the comeback". Way to go. Sum up the life, suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ the King in to one snappy attention getting catch-phrase. Strong work, people. Forgive me for not being impressed.

Almost as bad was the advertisement on television of one of the local Christian churches, inviting the public to a musical celebration of Christmas. So what was the Christmas hymn being sung by the choir on the commercial? That fine exposition of the gospel, "Sleigh Ride".
