I really meant to get to Part II of Instant Missional today, as it would seem that I’ve confused some of my friends who drop by this little part of the interweb. But my day gig hasn’t allowed me the time (and besides, I slept in this morning after reading two novels yesterday).

While I’ve been slaving over a hot Mac, Brant Hansen has been blogging up some grins as he does a little commentary on world-wide-world mega-phenome church, And there’s nothing wrong with that.

They’re taking it to the next, and logical, level.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. is a chain church, now nation-wide, and in South Florida. The church promises excellence in church experience. Every time you choose, they assure you: You will get “powerful worship and a life-changing message.”

You don’t get worship gatherings, or even gas-station-esque “services” — you get “weekend experiences.” These weekend experiences last one hour, precisely. Not a minute more, not a minute less, the site guarantees.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

You should hypertext link on over to the Hansen-powered pixels to read the whole thing – especially as Cranky Eugene Peterson was Unavailable for Comment.

I had my own GMaB comments on the folk last November – with their Money Back Guaranteed Tithing Offer.

  1. Bill,
    Thank for this link over to Brant. I mentioned over there that maybe you could find us that accordian player who would play us a dirge, virtually, if you please.

  2. Do some digging on LifeChurchTV.

    You may find the tech stuff dazzling (you’ve acknowledged your love of all things shiny:^)

    I don’t find at all funny, it is the usual corporate US hype, and I don’t give a flying fig how sincere they are.

    I see you got that somewhat in your prior post. Televangelism a la internet.
    Seriously, dig a bit, you have better skills than most of us.

  3. Wow — Bill, I hadn’t seen that prior GMaB post on the “tithe guarantee”.

    That’s stunning. And I’m kinda jaded.
