Me as a Young, Hip Mega-Church Pastor

Last year I wrote a post outlining the three required characteristics for young, hip mega-church pastors: gelled hair, funky glasses, and facial hair of some sort. Well, I was recently inspired to act out the role myself. In these photos you can see all three characteristics in place (I'll admit to lacking in the "young" department). As a bonus, I'm even wearing the right kind of shirt. Now where's my resume?

No offense but where exactly is the facial hair?

Arthur,

That is an excellent question. If you look closely, you can see that George Michael-like day old scruff. It's nothing fancy; just enough to fulfill the requirement.

A soul patch would be ideal here.

Steve,

I'm working on a full beard right now, so I suppose that will be part of it.

Is it wrong for this to be funny because it's so true?!

You would definitely fit in here:

John,

Amen!

Eric said...

Joel,

I love that one. Thanks.

Eric,

I'm lost for words :)

Eric said...

John,

I can almost make it work, can't I?

Eric,

You could go retro-Calvin and grow one of those ZZ Top type beards that the extra special Reformed types are wearing.

Eric said...

Steve,

I don't think have a long enough attention span for that.
