I got some great insight into our culture the other day from my young buddy and radio co-host Ford Garner. We were discussing the prospect of Jesus among us in 2013 and, since he is 19 and connected, I trust his judgment on all things pop culture.
Brief editorial interlude: Ford is a licensed minister, former Homecoming King, Chamber of Commerce “Student of the Year,” in-demand evangelist, college student, middle school youth leader, radio host and has 2000+ Facebook friends. Again, he is 19. The Facebook thing is probably impressive (I’m 42 so no real grasp of the significance), but I am pretty sure my accolades at 19 began and ended with “Most Likely to Waste Money.” Mission accomplished, Mom.
Anyway, we looked around at society and, more specifically, church culture. In fact, we discussed an entire YouTube channel devoted to such things for future generations to see how Christ fit in our lives in 2013. Welcome to YeshuaTube (we like to keep it real)….
