In the pulpit I’m the star of my own movie and you are the extras.
Well, that is the feeling I’ve had in some large churches. (And maybe I am naive to think small churches are immune). Honestly, I don’t think I could ever do the video venue thing. Even if it was useful, it would likely corrupt into something ugly. Multiplying venues is not the same as multiplying churches, and tends to avoid our engagement in the context. Granted also that there are men and women who have survived the spotlight, I just believe they are more rare than we think.
