Lunch today with Dr Smite

Dr Smite ordered the sausages and mash. So did I. Debbie had some french type pastry.
Simon Jenkins (ala Dr Smite) is the creator of Church of Fools, a virtual 3D church environment that was launched last month (i was there and made some movies). The site has already had well over a million visits from all kinds of people, including hecklers. With so many troublemakers coming to his church, Simon had to increase the number of “wardens” and give them power to “smite” people (ex-communicate them). In doing so, he brought the word “smite” out of King James oblivion and into the new media realm of virtual church. Well done Simon!
Having turned down his offer to preach at Church of Fools when he asked me at Blah, i decided today to accept his invitation and preach there soon. I am hoping Simon will give me the power to smite people from the pulpit as i preach. Especially those that don’t come up for the altar call or who don’t put enough into the offering plate. Or who dont pay enough attention. Heck. I might just smite everyone!

    Just as long as people don’t start smiting themselves :o)
    Hint for doing online sermons 101: always start off with a joke…
