Okay, first things must, of course, come first. Please watch this incredible scene from an episode of Parks and Recreation.
I’m sharing this video with you for two reasons:
1) It’s awesome. Fact.
2) It reminds me of the Church.
Maybe it’s just me being cynical, but I feel like the Church does stuff like this sometimes. In an attempt to hype something up, to make it the absolute best, we overcomplicate it. We stuff the Gospel with so much “presentation” that we smother the truth of the Gospel and dilute its power.
And then, to top it off, our proposed plot is stupid.
