So, I had an idea for a sermon series and thought I would put it up here for all of you creatve souls to chime in. Here it is:
Using the parables of Jesus to teach what reality will be like in the kingdom of God, as opposed to the "reality" we have reinforced for us by reality TV shows. Here's the challenge - use the name of a reality TV show to title a sermon from one of the parables about the kingdom. Bonus points for humor.
The Bachelor - The Parable of the Ten Virgins, Matthew 25:1-13 The catty argument about sharing the oil could totally happen on the Bachelor!
The Apprentice - The Parable of the Talents, Matthew 25:12-30 When the master returns and the servants have to own up, it's the ulimate boardroom scene.
Average Joe - The Parable of the Wedding Banquet, Matthew 22:1-14 No hunky guys here, just your every day run of the mill slubs at this wedding.
What you got?
