Comment from UTT:
 
Since Rick Warren has made the concept of the purpose driven church the model for all mega-churches to follow, anything is possible in the name of Christianity. This is why this article explaining how a church was turned into a circus is not much of a surprise. So, the question that comes across my mind is: What will this pastor and the elders of the church do next? What will be more dynamic than a circus? What ever happened to the sound teaching of the Bible and the solid presentation of the gospel?
 
December 21 - Texas Megachurch Turns Christmas Production Into Circus—Literally  
 
Article: Emerging Church
 
A megachurch in Texas recently turned its annual Christmas production in its worship center into a circus—literally, complete with a ringmaster, tricks and trapezes.

The Second Baptist Church of Texas, led by Dr. Ed Young, Sr., presented “Christmas Under the Big Top” at its Woodway campus from Friday to Tuesday, with tickets ranging from $10 to $25. The 90-minute drama centered on a storyline about a fictional effort to save a financially-struggling circus by putting on a Christmas show. In addition to much singing and dancing, the program also featured a Stomp-like trash can drumming peformance, and plenty of circus tricks, from juggling to acrobatics to Cyr wheel spinning. Styles of music varied from traditional to big band, to hip-hop and rock. A segment of the production also included a living nativity, and a brief message about life’s “distractions” from the meaning of Christmas was delivered near the conclusion.

Second Baptist also released a video promoting the event, inviting viewers to “[c]elebrate the true meaning of Christmas with us.” The video featured clips from previous performances, including fire-breathing and unicycling. “For the past five years, Second Baptist Church has shared the story and joy of Christmas with over 100,000 people across Houston, featuring live music, dancing, aerobatics and so much more,” the announcer states. “Come be a part of this Houston holiday tradition as we celebrate the birth of Christ and take you on a new adventure.”
