My Future Stardom

Kent at thetalkingmirror.com speaks to my soul:

You’ve got a problem. You feel the Lord calling you to a career as a chart-topping, face-shredding rock star, but you feel guilty about the sex, drugs, and sex that inevitably accompany super stardom.

Yes, I do!

Your solution? Become a worship leader! Get the groupies, the Facebook fanpages, and the all-you-can-drink booze buffets you’ve always wanted while keeping your conscience squeaky clean!


Now, before you run off to Colorado Springs and start a band, I should tell you, it takes more than non-threatening good looks and a severely inflated ego to become the mouthpiece of the church. You need a catchy ditty that people of all ages will relate to without fully understanding.

Oops, it's starting to sound like my background as an organist and handbell choir director won't really transfer.

The rest of this webinar is entirely too awesome to copy/paste, so please, go read and laugh.

Oh. My. Word.
That is awesome!
It succinctly verbalizes exactly how i feel about most cont. Christian worship (keep in mind i'm a contemporary Christian pianist, so i want to throw up every week) which is that most worship music is self-centered, Jesus-is-my-boyfriend, musical manipulation so people feel happy and generous.
Fantastic. thanks so much for linking to it!
