Unlike Joel Olsteen or Benny Hinn, I was in a movie yesterday with Trace Adkins and Peter Bogdanovich.
|Guy I'm Better Than|
|Other Guy I'm Better Than|
Which according to MY calculations puts the latest Cool Preacher Non-competitive Competition at:
Let's face it, MOST preachers just can't transition from "humble servant of the Lord" to "international movie icon" as smoothly as I can. But as most of you know, I have the uncanny ability to both emote AND evangelize at the same time. What can I say? We all have our talents - SOME (like me) just happen to have more than MOST (like Olsteen and Hinn).
Though none of the producers or crew mentioned it when I arrived on the set, the relief in their eyes was obvious. I was like the "Film Calvary". I'm glad they kept things low key. Fuss fuzzies focus. Unlike the "country singer" and "the guy who made Paper Moon", my performance was going to save the movie, and everybody knew it.
Of course, by the time I reached the set, Adkins and Bogdanovich had already left. Cowards. But I can't say that I blame them. No one wants to be shown up in a movie by a simple, country Preacher. And especially by a simple country Preacher who is going to single-handedly save an entire motion picture with just 3 lines.
You read that right...
3 lines. That's it. THREE.
3 lines + BP = Movie salvation.
Surprised? Oh, come on. Be serious. I'm a Preacher, for cryin' out loud. I'm all about savin' stuff. I've never actually baptized a movie before but I'm willing to give it a try.
I just realized this is just too big a topic for one Blermon (blog-sermon). We're gonna have to go Blermon Bleries (sermon series) on this one.
Sigh...movie, coffee, Blermon Bleries...life just keeps getting better and better.
