I notice a couple of things in this video that linger on in evangelical culture.First, there is the attempt to be cool. I guess there is nothing wrong with this in and of itself, but . . . Second, there is the tragic failure at actually being cool. It is clear that the singers, dancers, and musicians are not expressing themselves, but rather aping what they think is cool (and falling very short).Third, there is the inability to escape conformity. The suits and the ties--really? Who performs music like that in attire like that? No one. The musicians couldn't escape the expectations of the evangelical sub-culture.Anyway, I am all for contemporary expressions of faith--even goofy ones--as long as the art is an expression of the artist. This is clearly not an example of that. This is an example of evangelicals trying to be what they are not in order to please a crowd.
WOW. I mean WOW. I fully expect to see you do a little boogie on Sunday.
