Casper, WY. — A senior pastor in Casper has been battling a problem that has been shared by thousands of other pastors throughout the country. A common theme amongst these particular churches and pastors seem to be an uninterested congregants. Local Pastor Jake Haddit says, “Today, many of our attendees just refuse to become invested in becoming a stakeholder in what God’s doing. Time and TV will not allow it.” Haddit went on to explain that too many church people are more in tune with television shows than their church, and it’s sad.
The Natrona County preacher explained how he’s figured out a solution to beat this problem, or at least, give pastors a sporting chance to compete with these TV dramas. These parishioners Sundays, will even come to church discussing what happened to Jack, on such and such show, or who was the winner of that talent show…it’s always something other than God. So, beginning Sunday, I will begin a series of sermons that will literally be cliffhangers, and I will do them exactly like a TV drama, and divide them into seasons. So, come Sunday, we will begin season one. These messages will have people sitting on the edge of their seats, and they’ll become anxious about the next one. Our Facebook feed should also see some higher numbers, because God knows, everyone loves a good cliffhanger.
Oh, and this is very scriptural, started with season 1. In the Word, found in 2 Timothy 4:2 (NKJV)
Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
