I want to be a ROCKSTAR!
I want to be a rockstar. That's all there is to it.
Last night, I went to see the Rolling Stones at Giants Stadium. And while I was standing on the unsteady folding chair on the floor (on the FLOOR!!!), I suddenly understood why contemporary worship is appealing. I was nervous about the guy next to me that was literally worshipping the Stones. But, I understood why this works for so many people in my generation and younger. It's a complete high, which I can only hope lasts beyond the worship experience.
But, really, I just want to be a rockstar. I want to wear my leather and sequins and dance around the pulpit rallying the enthusiasm and energy of the crowd. Ahem, congregation. Will the people of God say amen?
