Lately, I’m wondering what God is saying about how close we now resemble bad reality tv shows. Every month there has been one church scandal, bigger than the one before. Every week, more foolishness, wilder, incredulous. For example, this past week I had the great pleasure of watching a rebroadcast of a local pastor confessing to his congregation about a rumor that had gotten too big to ignore. His confession made the front page of all our local papers and can be watched even now on his church streaming page.
Usually when church gossip makes broadcast news, I ignore it. As a publicist and former journ, it’s very easy to do, because I understand the Spin machine. But this last news...I’m tired.
