Establishing My Kingdom in the Video Room

You might already be familiar with this video that went viral last week. The video features a pastor calling out congregants in the middle of his sermon. I don’t think that’s the best way to deal with that.

I’m not going to embed the video on this blog post, because I don’t really feel like doing that. You can go YouTube it if you haven’t seen it yet (HINT search for: “Jim Standridge Throws a Hissy Fit”).

Out of all the people he called out I want to focus on one person: THE VIDEO GUY! Mainly because I’m a video guy, and many of the people that read this blog are video guys as well.

I think we can all agree that correction is good. There’s no other way to experience growth than through correcting your failures. What scares me is not being called out by a pastor, what scares me is that he did it in public. I feel that if you got a problem with the video guy, you should be taking care of it privately (otherwise it’ll end on YouTube).

Then again, I don’t know the video guy. Maybe he was intentionally establishing his kingdom in the video room. Maybe he wasn’t being nice. I don’t know, it happens.

So next time you think about establishing your kingdom in the video room you should ask yourself: what are the chances of my pastor going ballistic in front of the whole congregation, calling me out?

Thankfully my pastor is pretty awesome. He sends me notes of encouragement.
