Continuing on with the preaching theme this week, here is a great YouTube clip featuring Taylor Mali from Def Poetry Season 2 on our being "the most aggressively inarticulate generation to come along since, you know, a long time ago!"



Sadly, the "tragically cool and totally hip interogative tone" that he mocks here occupies too many of our pulpits and public speech about God.

    Well said. I am going to show this one to my High School students.

  • High School students? I will be showing this to my college students - upper division. Worth watching also is Taylor Mail's outstanding "The The Impotence of Proofreading."

  • I saw this several months back, and I hate to say it, even though I was listening to Rob Bell at the time, he was the first guy this video made me think of. Funny stuff! But true and much needed.

    That was like, you know, SOOOOOO cool!

    Just kidding. I'm always trying to get my teenage son to articulate WHY he believes something to be true.

    "That's so stupid."
    "Why do you feel it's stupid?"
    "It just is. Duh, everybody knows that."
    "Tell me what everybody knows."
    "It's stupid!"
    "Make be believe it's stupid. Tell me why I should think it's stupid."
    "Mooooooom! It just is. Because, you know, like, everyone thinks it is. So it is."

    AHHHHHH. Circular reasoning gets us nowhere but it seems to be the way we all respond to issues we don't really have a rational arguement for. Secular science textbooks come to mind. . .
