Gannet's Christmas Recommendations . . .

for those years in which disorientation is an optimistic descriptor:

Not recommended:

A Christmas Eve sermon offering as its theme, "Jesus came so that you could have a better life." Don't even get me started. (Move over, Joel Osteen.)

Recommended:

An afternoon walk through Gulf waters of blue and green followed by a long nap.

Highly recommended:

A Christmas Dinner of grilled shrimp-scallop-and-pineapple kabobs out on the deck.

Once again you prove that you belong in a seaside bungalow.

I'll remember those recommendations for disorientation times.

I can do the walk but not the shrimp. We disagree on assimilation.

And that sermon sounds like a "FAIL" for sure.

(word verification: "gratides"!! How about that!)

Ouch - there are times when it would be a good thing if sermon texts were pre-screened and rated (CC, cheery Christianity?)

The walk and shrimp sound like graces...

Prayers still float up like the incense yesterday...

I'm glad that at least a couple of things are/were to be recommended - and do sound good. I'll have PG's share of the shrimp

Jodie said...

It would be cool if we could go to Yahoo and look up the critics and listener ratings of a sermon before actually sitting it through.

At least for those special occasion sermons.

I'm not sure that sermon would be recommended, ever. And the rest sounds like a five star anytime.

Sermon- epic fail, as my FBC would say.

Blessings to you in these Christmas days, from a Floridian who knows the gifts of the places where the sea meets the shore. May that between-place offer some treasures to help sustain you in the year ahead. Peace to you and all whom you love.

Dinner sounds like the perfect feast...

I have this theory. Everyone should be issued a paint ball gun... for 2 specific reasons. First... you could use it on cars that are driven by crazy drivers (then others could identify those vehicles and stay far... far away). Your post... now indicates that the second use would be for pulpits... to indicate that the pastors standing behind them are clueless... and people should stay far... far away!
