You can’t make this stuff up. I came across a brand new reality television show on the National Geographic channel called “Church Rescue” this weekend.
Before I tell you about it, let me direct you to a post I wrote for Provoketive Magazine entitled, “New Reality Show Pitch: Church Rescue.” I wrote it on May 8 of this year.
Seriously. (The article had a larger point, germane to this site, but carry on).
In it, I said we should start a show like “Bar Rescue” on Spike TV. In that show, a bar expert goes into different bars, finds the problems, brings in other experts and fixes them. Here’s a quote from my article:
So I’m not upset or angry or whatever. But it does look a little weird.
But I am asking for a favor. My whole site is set up to help fallen pastors and churches effected by pastors who fall. So, if the series runs into a church or fallen pastor who needs serious expert help – think about contacting me.
And if the series creators came up with the same idea at the same time I did – you’re a bunch of stinking geniuses.
