When I see a church advertising their up-coming drive-by crucifixtion, I start to wonder if we’ll go to the Junior Drive-Thru Funeral Home afterwards. Or if a drive-by crucifixtion is the first-century equivilent of a drive-by shooting. And I wonder who came up with this brilliant idea. What purpose does it serve? Are they trying to bring in lost souls? Is this their way of celebrating the resurrection? Perhaps they think it will be a meaningful way to help other Christians commemorate Christ’s death? Update: Looks like I’m not the only person bothered:
I do not want to waste this Lent. I don’t want a drive-thru Pascha: A hit-and-run that leaves me only with a nice set of clothes and with no lasting changes.
