Church: What is it Good For? 7/9
"Do you have anything to say to me before I leave?" -- Lancelot Lamar in Walker Percy's Lancelot. Or was it Beyoncé in Lemonade? Or is the Samaritan woman at that well with Jesus? The Trinity Brazos Area of the Southwest Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) pondered it hard at our annual assembly.
For the first part of the sermon, Bey's "Hold Up" video played silently on the screen behind the preacher. It was... umm... unsettling. In the best possible way.
You don't have to have read Lancelot or seen Lemonade for this to make sense. But you probably should anyway. Just sayin'.
