Concerning video clip of ordained PCA elders hits internet...



Here's a quick video clip of our elementary youth group's Winter Olympics last night.

Great fun, of course.

My only concern begins at 1:38 of the video. There you will see two ordained Pastors (The Reverends Brian Hough and Nathan Currey) and an elder in the Church (RE Travis Shanahan) looking most ungraceful.

Where was I? Probably praying, fasting, or reading my bible somewhere.

Don't tell me you built the school just to do that. Looks like great fun and great memories. For some reason I couldn't get it out of my head for a few seconds that one of the words in the title of this post isn't, "ordaining," which would give this post a whole new meaning.

Oh the carnage! Too bad this is sport of outcomes and goals, because this event deserved judges providing their evaluation of the performance. Tell Hough to lose the jeans with the rip in the knee. Only Brad Pitt could get away with that look. It's school Brian, not Fight Club.

Just wild guess, but, haha, maybe you were the one holding the video- or cell phone camera.

You were reading your, "bible"? Doesn't sound like a version of the Holy Bible that anyone should read, much less study.

So did Nathan and Brian have to go to the Hospital? That crash and burn scene looked pretty ugly.
How said Christians can’t have fun. What a joy it is to see kids playing, understanding that the Christian life Christ wants us to experience is ideed, “the abundant, ZOE` life He promised.

What were they thinking? No safety equipment at all! And using Queen for the sound track!

Picker's of nits would be beside themselves! I am surprise that this is not on the tabloid network programming.

Has Sarah Palin demanded anyone's resignation, yet?

Oh, the humanity!

I was looking for the disclaimer at the end, “No animals were harmed in the production of this video.” Look liked great fun, but I think after review of the tape Pastor Nathan would have been disqualified for interference and Pastor Brian for wardrobe malfunction. ; )

I think Razor scooters needs to post a weigh-limit on their scooters...slo-mo of that was great!

The kids at breakaway would welcome a Reepicheep challenger, especially when we build the outdoor course as soon as it gets above freezing

BT, what on earth are you talking about?

Brother Titus said...

Sorry I can't be much help yet; but, of the comments I posted here, which part are you referring to?

BT,

This statement:

"You were reading your, "bible"? Doesn't sound like a version of the Holy Bible that anyone should read, much less study."

With all due respect, I was trying to be lighthearted and still make a point; but, I guess what I'd intended to convey boils down to a matter of opinion on how the word, "Bible," is written by any one person, because I'm certainly not the standard in this instance; however, I believe there is a standard when it comes to speaking and writing about the one supremely peerless and singularly unique book the world has ever known that English-speaking people call the, "Holy Bible." And, so, I believe when writing a reference about this unique book, it should be stated as, "Bible," with a capital, "B," even "Holy Bible," because it is that more definitively, not just a, "bible," with a lower case, "b," as it is the one book that is truly set apart by God for communicating His holy will to saints and sinners and not a common book by any stretch. Even though we get the word, "Bible," translated from a word that simply means, "book," it's a very good thing that our Bibles have the word, "holy," in front of it, because the "Holy Bible" is no mere comic book, romance novel, or 12-step book, it's God's holy Word, able to transform worthless lives from ignoble to noble use! No other book in the whole history of mankind can say that, much less do it! So, I suppose that there will always be people who'll write, "Bible," with a lower case, "b," including some Christians (I know of another.); but, hopefully it's not because they have lower views of Scripture. And, I'm certainly not saying you have a low view of Scripture. You probably didn't spell check your comment. It was just actually quiet shocking to see that you'd let your spelling of the word, "Bible," come through as, "bible," to your readers. That's all.
