The Church is like a tourist-fed bear, (or maybe like one in a zoo)

March 31, 2007

The metaphor is mixed and difficult to grasp on the first reading.  But work at it, it’s worth it.

    I guess it is 2 similar metaphors. Stetzer uses one, and I another. At least I didn’t use the dialogue from Swingers about being a big bear that isn’t sure what to do with the bunny :-)

    I liked Ed’s metaphor, but thought the zoo added another element (attractional ministry).

    Sure, I love mixed metaphors. Paul does it all the time!
