GRAPEVINE, Texas (UMNS) – A Texas pastor gave members of his congregation an unusual assignment – watch the Super Bowl and don’t leave the room during the commercials.
“I think the Super Bowl’s a cultural event in our society,” said the Rev. Dr. Ken Diehm, pastor of First United Methodist Church of Grapevine, near Dallas. “And so, I think it provides the church an opportunity to comment on what is going on in that culture.”
Diehm believes there are lessons to be learned in the much-hyped ads. For the past several years, his post-game sermons have focused on the advertising.
I hope that TV was under 55 inches.
