Josh Harris on discernment

I was sorry to see that my post on a megachurch's "Bringing Sexy Back" campaign sparked a pile-on of commenters criticizing Protestant approaches to worship. I should have expected that, though it's hard to say how it could have been forestalled.

It's important to note that many if not most Protestants don't exactly favor putting a king-size bed on the pulpit, just as many if not most Catholics aren't crazy about Clown Masses.

As an olive branch, I offer an example of a Protestant pastor and author who doesn't need any questionable stage props: Josh Harris. Here he is with a great story demonstrating the importance of discernment.
