Occupy the Altar

Oh for crying out loud.  I appreciate the need to pray, but is anyone else but me a little embarrassed by this?

Just wondering.

    Well… is it a movement, or just two guys with signs?

      Trying to start a movement. It starts with one person… The message is simple: Jesus is the answer.

        Good point, but I’m already part of THAT movement, and I’m really sure it doesn’t need a trendy “here-today-gone-tomorrow” moniker…

    Two thoughts:

    1. It is not nearly as bad as I imagined it would be… where were the megaphones?
    2. This is another in a long line of cheap Christian knock offs… but typically these things turn into t-shirts instead of “movements”

      Christians should be banding together, not knocking one another for trying to spread the Gospel.

    Nothing wrong with a call to prayer, ever. It’s always cheesy to copy whatever trend is going on and put a Jesus-spin on it, instead of coming up with original ideas ourselves. But, there have been a lot worse like the t-shirts that use company and product slogans and change them to religious ones and stuff like that.

    The embarrassment is that it was 2 guys with crappy signs outside. Do they go to a church? It would be a movement if they got a bunch of people from various churches together. But, occupy the altar…….that would usually be in your church. I know it can be figurative and just a call to prayer in general. But, is the purpose for people to “occupy” a certain public space to pray?

    Did I miss it, or did the first guy speak for a whole minute using only one sentence? Whatever happen to punctuation?
