According to Global TV: There’s a Christian reformation stirring in Canada’s Christian churches. Forsaking the traditional pew and altar, these Christians are dropping pop culture references, defying the orthodoxy, and creating their own brands of worship. Suddenly, it’s hip to be holy.
To which I say, really? I can’t honestly say I see a ‘reformation’ happening. Inklings of goodness coming out of the cracks absolutely, but the church still has a long way to go in Canada.
My friend Nathan Gerber will be featured in it, which will definitely make it worth watching. (Revealed: Hip 2B Holy on Global TV Monday May 25 10pm EST, 9pm Central, 8pm Western).
See the video below interviewing director Karen Pinker and Kevin Newman about the show. They sound like tourists who’ve read all the brochures, but haven’t quite lived with the natives yet.
I sure hope it’s not lame. Pray that it’s an honest depiction (beauty and ugliness and all), and that it actually helps move conversations across the nation forward.
Update: Some clips from the show laced with post-production reflections.
