"A Cat, A Hat and A Eucharist!"

Warning a segment of false Eucharist rituals:

One thing you have noticed is these churches clinging to their false rituals, have to constantly jazz them up to get people in the door. We have seen Rave Masses, U2 Eucharists, etc, now add the CAT IN THE HAT. Dr Seuss, was not a Christian even the UUs at various times have tried to claim him for themselves.

"The one that's giving me fits today is Dr. Seuss, Theodor Geisel. UU minister Douglas Taylor starts a sermon "Theodore Geisel was a Unitarian Universalist author better known around the world as Dr. Seuss." But he doesn't say how he came to that conclusion. Now, of course, the Dr. Seuss books have all kinds of great UU ideas in them. A few biographical details point to him not being a church-goer: He was married by a justice of the peace. He was cremated without a funeral. I'm getting a humanist/agnostic vibe, which might fit with a CLF-type UU who never clicked with a UU congregation. Or maybe he just didn't connect with any religion at all, UU or otherwise. Anybody out there have a lead on this? "

Some of the liturgy commenters who believe in the Eucharist, cry Blasphemy but since the Eucharist itself is blasphemy against God, the surrounding silliness is just more icing on the rotten cake. The two young men dressed as "Things", look embarrassed more then anything else. By the way this was not the only church that has done this.

When your doctrine is based on man, then you always have to jazz it up. Because people get bored. They get tired of one song and dance, and move on to the next.

The only inexhaustible resource is the Word of God, the Bible. Only the Bible never burns out, and it is impossible to get "tired" of it, because God is awesome and eternally exciting, and because truth never changes.

I agree, this why false churches are full of fads, new processes, new programs, endless ways to make it all ENTERTAINING to the masses. I agree God's Word is never boring, and one will never grow tired of it.

The second guy said it best: "The purpose of the service is to 'create an experience'."

It isn't about God. It is about euphoria, existentialism, feeling good (aka itchy ears).

Entertainment. It is a business, nothing more.

Agree rena.

Sure this is all experiential worship.

Church as entertainment, and theater show, this time with it marketed to the children and their parents.
