One of my on-line friends took his kids to Disneyworld. He’s seriously addicted to Twitter, so with the help of his iPhone the rest of us got to experience the trip as well. He spent a ton of money and dove into the whole Mickey Mouse experience, souvenirs and all. His final tweet that day: “We have left the park—now what do we do with these mouse ears?”
What do we do with these mouse ears?
This is a parable. What happens if we are so heavily invested in the church-world that we look ridiculous outside the church? It’s one thing to be a fan of Mickey Mouse inside an exclusive park where everyone is a fan. It’s quite another to represent him out in the real world. And I wonder, are mouse ears the best way to do so?
