Damage Control

I'm sure we all have seen the video of the student pastor who gets his chance to talk in "big church" and messes up trying to say, "pitched his tents". Well, a friend of mine, Scott Murrill of Grace Community Church in Columbia, MD, might have topped it.

He was attempting to get the crowd all fired up by imagining with them the impact of true Christ-followers living out what they believe. His metaphor was damage. The word he combined with damage was God. You do the math. As in, "We could do alot of God _______." An audible gasp eminated from the crowd of 800 shocked church goers. That is classic.

So, in short, don't combine God with damage. Period.
