I dont know these guys . . . REALLY!!!
"Taking a page out of the Billy Sunday playbook, the authors will spread the emergent message of a generous, hope-filled Christian faith in the style and cadence of the tent revival preachers of a hundred years ago. They plan to have fun with it, wearing frock suits and selling “healing balm,” but the goal is, as in the revivals of yore, to preach the good news.
. . . The tour featuring Tony Jones, Doug Pagitt and Mark Scandrette will hit thirty-two cities across the U.S., with a message that combines old time revival flair with a 21st century gospel. They’ll preach, sing and sell healing balm in church basements from San Diego to New York."
Its corny and stupid and its also brilliant. I cant believe they are doing this without me! Just because I am out of the country . . . Anyway, make sure you see these three crazy friends of mine when they come through your town on The Church Basement Roadshow: A Rollin' Gospel Revival.
Speaking of corny and stupid . . . without being brilliant . . . check out Our Tribal Piercing Ceremony where Doug Pagitt and Mark Scandrette come to Orkney to visit me, along with uberGeek Michael Toy, and we attempt to pierce our ears against the standing stones of the ancient Ring of Brogar.
