This year I find more and more of my humor, not to mention my time, being siphoned off to fuel Dr. Toboggans’ increasingly numerous activities. I don’t know how I ended up as his chaperon, but it doesn’t look like I’ll be making parole any time soon.
What I have been making, at least on this site, are more serious posts. Articles that put into print the ideas and conversations that I have been developing with several friends over the last few years about faith and action and changing the world one person at a time.
To that end I recently made a video about the word “christian” and what it might mean outside of the marketing channels it has grown to represent.
I didn’t think I was ready to share it, but my friend Debbie sent me a link to a parallel post by Brain Jones that reminded me that I wasn’t alone in this approach to faith. Strange how quickly I seem to forget that. Anyway here it is.
This site has always featured idiocy in advertising rather prominently, but it’s not nearly as funny when it lands this close to home.
Hopefully this time someone is listening.
It’s time to stop the hype.
