My brother David, who is somewhat of a character, was being interviewed by a Bible college student about his family for some project. When he came to me, he told her that I am a pastor. “What type of church?” she asked. “The church of rock and roll and what’s happening now.”
You have to know my brother to see how he could say this with a straight face.
She nodded, and David started laughing as she wrote down that I was pastor of emerging church. He stopped her, told her that he was just kidding, and told her that I was pastor of a Fellowship Baptist church.
More craziness: I’m currently listed as one of six emergent blogs at Wikipedia.
I certainly don’t mind the honor: that’s a pretty impressive list of blogs (Andrew Jones, Jordon Cooper, etc.) and I don’t know how I made such a list. Someone will soon figure out that I don’t belong with such esteemed company and edit the article, I’m sure.
But wait until my brother finds out. I’m hoping he won’t be interviewed anymore.
Update: The link’s been deleted on Wikipedia. Guess my 15 minutes are up. Second update: Jordon rants about the blogs listed there. Unfortunately, Jordon is wrong. Blogs like mine probably don’t belong there, but his does, along with Andrew Jones, John O’Keefe’s, and a few prime or early movers (in my opinion).
