Stuck on the escalator?

Sometimes we need people on the outside to point out the absurdity of what is happening to us. Here's a hilarious commercial for Becel margarine that I think describes the situation of the church, as well as a lot of other institutions.

When I watched this clip, I immediately flashed back to all the times when something we were used to suddenly stopped working, and we had no idea what to do. And so we, in effect, stood around hollering for someone to come and fix it, rather than just walking ahead.

Breaking out of it is not as easy as it seems. But alot of the bewilderment of the church these days reminds me of two people stuck on an escalator.

How about you?

  1. A great video clip with a resounding message about human behaviour. I guess knowing how and when to move ahead is key.

    Thank you for another thought provoking entry.
