For those of you that know my father’s profession…this video is really funny.
WARNING: Those of you with coulrophobia (yes, I know the term by heart and can spell it) may want to pass to keep the nightmares away during service.
The end of the video’s spouting of scripture betrays the video poster’s beliefs, that Communion is too holy and dignified to be done with clowns. I’ve also witnessed this tension as parishioners complain when the tempo of the music in the receiving line is too upbeat, causing people to sway and sing and…well…celebrate!
To me, this is a humor.hack, one that uses humor (or humorous characters) to tell a story and bring new perspective to a situation.
What do you think?
- Can Communion be given this irreverent (and yet, solemn) treatment and presentation?
- Or is communion a dignifiedand ancient ritual that deserves to be set-apart?
