The Stirring vs. The Superbowl

Seriously...is there anyone that cares about The Patriots or The Giants? I used to be into the Giants when they had Phil Simms and Lawrence Taylor but this game has no appeal to me. Maybe it's because I don't get local stations and I'm leading worship this weekend starting at 2pm. We'll see who the hardcore are this week! I'm predicting the biggest 7p.m. gathering in the history of the Stirring. Now if the Colts were in the Superbowl I might of mysteriously come down with some life threatening illness.
To be honest...if you're a football nut and you're having a bunch of people over to your house for the game we would much rather you do that then come to church. The church does not happen in the basement of a Nazarene gym...the church is coming together in many places this Sunday around tv's with huge bowls of guacamole. The church is the people of God walking and breathing in this world together in church gyms, living rooms, and Dutch Bros.
If you're watching the game this Sunday, somebody tivo the half time show because I am bummed that I'm missing Petty.
I know there aren't a whole lot of pastors that tell you to stay home to watch the Superbowl but that's how we roll.

Maybe everyone can bring football gear and we'll have our OWN superbowl....we'll get out the bleachers and sell hot dogs and big foam fingers and paint our faces. I'd totally win the game, by the way. I'm a tough girl.

I am having a stirring/community superbowl party this Sunday, and I am excited about the body of christ all coming together.

IF...and that's a big IF the Colts were any good then one or two people might care (you and Alyssa) but they aren't and my Patriots are going to make history...
