A Little Fun For Your Friday

- - Uncategorized

My favorite thing from the Seahawks -vs- Packers playoff stunner was Michael Bennett riding around the stadium on a police bike, waving to fans and high-fiving the Sea Gals. It made me LOL. literally.

Speaking of LOLing, I hope one or more of these videos will make you giggle or at least snortle.

Here’s a little fun for your Friday… Enjoy!

When Church Jumps The Shark

Sometimes church jumps the shark.

What’s that mean?

From Wikipedia:

“Jumping the shark is an idiom created by Jon Hein that was used to describe the moment in the evolution of a television show when it begins a decline in quality, which is usually a particular scene, episode, or aspect of a show in which the writers use some type of ‘gimmick’ in an attempt to keep viewers’ interest. Its name is taken from a scene from a fifth season episode of the sit-com Happy Days when the character Fonzie jumps over a shark on water-skis.”

Related to church, I want focus on this aspect of jumping the shark…

If whatever we were evaluating did have the label “Christian” on it, then the green light of acceptability was given and we could enjoy the thing.

If it wasn’t “Christian,” it probably wasn’t going to be acceptable… Read More
