Andrew Thompson has a bone to pick with the megachurches that cancelled services on Christmas Day this year. To be fair to Rev. Thompson, he is not alone. Much of the mainline media and many in the mainline denominations have really stressed over this phenomenon.
I admit I, too, was at first upset with said churches. I seem to have pretty much gotten over it.
Since we “gen-xers” cringe so quickly at the “We’ve never done it that way before” attitude portrayed by the established; I have been practicing catching myself with the same attitude. Isn’t hypocrisy fun?
Disdain for “megachurches” doing things differently seems to cut across generational boundaries. Here the lines are more fairly drawn at one’s connection with the established church.
Under the title of “Gen-X Rising” Rev. Thompson takes an establishment angle of attack on a decided non-traditional method of dealing with Christmas Day falling on a Sunday.
Is Gen-X really rising, or is it falling into the same habits and patterns of the generations gone before it?
