Name a church-win a Wii...

I got sent this the other day, and apparently it's pretty legit.

All you do is come up with a name and catchy tagline for a church, and you win a Nintendo Wii!

I think i might float the idea with the Huddle on mon, come up with a tagline and see if we can win the group a Wii!!

There's some alarm bells ringing faintly somewhere to do with mixing consumeristic desires and churches, but I can't really articulate them, so until i do-I say check this out!

I don't see anything wrong with using incentive schemes to find ideas. Now if you ran a reality TV show between the short listed names to try and determine what name to use I would have issues.

How about the "Desperately Trying to Look Cool" church?

(Probably not catchy enough...)

Janet Woodlock said...

"Jesus was outrageous and lived totally against the grain of a legalistic culture"... is one of the slogans of this crowd.

Don't you think if Jesus lived today he would be "totally against a self centred consumeristic culture"? Would Jesus give away a Wii as an "incentive prize"?

(Excuse my ranting... I've been shoving things in boxes all day... it must bring out the cynic in me.
They're probably wonderful people....)

I'd better confess it's not like I'm not influenced by consumer culture... my kids already have a Wii....

Would Jesus buy his kids a Wii? Mmmm....

Right, back to packing boxes.

Would Jesus have kids?

Did Jesus have kids?

Just what did Jesus do with dick other than piss out of it?

David said...

Left a word out, last sentence meant to say "What did Jesus do with his dick other than piss out of it"

Didn't mean to offend people by suggesting that Jesus was gay. Although some have suggested he was.

yeah there was an add that featured in the RipItUp music street mag here in Adelaide for the Win A Wii Name A Church. I think it's pretty good idea, that may partly be because I got told the other day who it was that was running the competition.

David said...

Why not make the prize "we'll donate to the charity or good cause of your choice" ?

Would that introduce a lower moral standard?

Am amused by the lack of moral clarity Christians show. Looks like your faith is not working for you. Aren't any of you listening to the Holy Spirit?

Janet Woodlock said...

Aw David... you know I'm far too intellectual to do that!

Janet Woodlock said...

I found an article today relevant to this thread... not for naming a church per se, but for naming a church group.

(Gotta love "Lark News"... it's a crack up)
