Of Church, Bikers and Beer!

This ad for Carlsberg Beer has received over eight million hits on Youtube! After you finish laughing, think about how this might reflect someone’s experience walking into a church for the first time. Will we appear as a room filled with intimidating bikers? Will we welcome the brave souls who squeeze into a pew warmly, if not raucously? If not a cold beer, what do we have to offer that lets people know that they are just one of the gang? Turn it around? How would a couple tough looking bikers feel walking into our church on a Sunday morning?

  1. This is really fabulous, George. There are so many body language things just aching to be shouted. I will pass this on.

    You and your family are always in my prayers.


  2. Love how this example can be used to illustrate various social encounters where one might feel intimidated for being “different.” For instance, gatherings based upon ethnicity, racial background, professional status, economic levels, etc. So important to remember that we all have the power to make someone else feel like “one of the gang”………and what a beautiful gift that is when we choose to use it.
