Viral Christianity.

Tomorrow morning, our senior pastor won't be preaching. His father passed away this last week, and he's feeling the need to stay away tomorrow -- which I think of us would feel in similar circumstances!

So I've been working on a sermon for tomorrow morning, borrowing a few loose concepts from the Being a Contagious Christian material that Willow Creek produced back in the 1990s. Our focus tomorrow will be on "Viral Christianity," noting that our call as Christians in the Great Commission is similar to the viral videos and marketing techniques of our generation. They're addictive, they're agents of change, they spread rapidly, and they're active not passive. Those strike me as characteristics of what a genuine Christian life should be.

So go be viral for God.
