Grrr! 3D TV is out and old news! Hullo Ultra HD screens! Now we have to re-kit our church screens!

Just as I was wondering what I will be doing with all these hymn books that we hardly open, (thanks to the latest brand of rock guitars and beat boxes) guess what smacks me on my way off the stage? Ooops pulpit. In my never ending bid to keep up with other celebrity mega churches I have decided to cast caution and throw it into the wind. I am living it BIG…no BIGGER!! I want to rub shoulders with the relevant and up and coming of my generation. Ask me why? Well the word is ‘I am contextualising the gospel’. Shhh….it just means I want to be dead but appear cool. That is why when they announced recently that 3D screens are out and done with,  my heart sank as I ran to see my mentors. Did you hear that…

Stars such as Eliza Dusku, will.i.am and LL Cool J unveiled the latest technology at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show at the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

The show is the biggest event in the year’s technology calendar – attended by technology giants including Panasonic, Sony, Samsung and LG.

Tech companies were beating the drum for 3D with a little less enthusiasm than previous years – but instead, new ultra-slim OLED TVs and ‘Ultra HD’ sets offering four times the resolution of normal hi-def were on offer to tempt TV fans.

Now we have to change the church budget. How do you expect us to attract souls with only 3 D screens? Hmmm. This year we shall push the tithe to 40% and it will be compulsory! And we may also have to do the back tithe ( remember all those years you were a sinner and never tithed?)

My relevant earthlings. We must invest in these gadgets that neither moth nor rust can corrupt and the church must be the first in the queue.

Wait a minute. It’s all a dream.

Hee hee! Bring on that good old hymn book. It still works for me…even at home.  😉

    Reblogged this on Justification by Grace and commented:
    I am growing to appreciate Acidri’s ironic sense of humor more and more. Sadly, it cuts far too close to the truth of how many are ordering “worship” as they gather. Hey, I wonder if Ed Young’s techs, gaffers, grips, and best boys will have to re-tool and re-fit for the broadcast-apoluza ala the rooftop Bed-In. Stay-tuned.
