McChurch: I Need It Now.


Microwaves.
Drive-thrus.
Smartphone Apps.
Google.

Get it now, fast, the way you want it.

When ever you need a fix, or a snack, or an explanation, or an update…
It’s right there, at your fingertips, or your car window, or on your plate in seconds.

Our culture of consumerism has driven us to be so quickly pleased, or displeased.

I’m hungry, so let’s go through the McDonald’s drive through.
I know it’s crap, but it will be a quick fill.

I need to know what’s going on, so let’s check the Twitter feed.
Most of it is just noise, but I may get something of value; or at the least I’ll feel connected.

I need to feel good after that regrettable night, so let’s go to church.
I know it’s only surface-level change, but I’ll feel better; and it will hold me over ’till next weekend.

To be continued…
