Larknews Update!!!

I saw this over at my buddy Josh Griffin's blog... and it totally cracked me up. I love LARKNEWS... but somehow I missed this article. Here's a snipet:

MySpace gives pastor ‘prophetic’ edge
"PEORIA, Ariz. — Last Sunday, pastor Irwin Alton, 62, preached against several specific sins during his sermon. Some people in the audience gasped with recognition.
"When he talked about skipping mid-week service to go to the lake, and buying a new boat when you haven’t tithed, I felt nailed to my pew," said one man. "It was like the Holy Spirit was speaking right to me."

But it wasn’t the Holy Spirit — it was the man’s own blog where he had posted photos of himself and his buddies on his new boat on a Wednesday evening.
Pastor Alton, who cultivates a reputation as a computer illiterate techno-phobe, is actually an avid reader of MySpace pages, blogs and personal websites of the people in his congregation."

The article cracked me up. Check it out. Lark's got some pretty pithy stuff.

  1. I've not used MySpace, but I do know that Facebook is great for catching students' lies about why they missed classes.

    You might ask yourself why they're foolish enough to put me on their contacts list and then miss my class hung over. I ask myself the same ALL THE TIME.

    BTW, when does LTS start back up for you? I'm headed back to campus tomorrow to start getting my ducks in a row to teach.
