Could it be that our horizontal relationships with each other are jacked up because our vertical relationship with God is jacked up?
…is the premise that I came to when I was working on this 4-part blog series. I’ve actually been thinking about writing this for a while, but didn’t quite know where to start. Therefore, I will take you through the process, how I arrived to this question, and my thoughts on an answer. The process simply starts here:
I WATCH TV!
Granted, I don’t watch a whole lot of TV because of my schedule, but when I’m home I do like to kick back, relax, and watch a little mind-numbing television. In small doses, it’s ok. As my Uncle would say “Everybody needs a ‘Gomer Pyle’ in their life.” Often times I watch TV with my wife which is a mix of reality television, medical dramas, or scripted shows. If it were up to me it would either be something funny, animated, historical, or science/science fiction. We’re definitely different in our selection of television shows, but the shows that catch my attention the most are the reality TV shows.
Have you ever heard of the phrase “variations on a theme”? That’s what reality shows are to me. You might ask the question “Well, if there’s one common theme between ALL reality TV shows, then what is it? I can’t see how Real Housewives of Atlanta is related to Teen Mom or Preacher’s Daughters or Flava of Love or Preachers of LA or Basketball Wives.”
Glad you asked. In my opinion, the common theme is simple. Relationships.
Stay tuned. More to come…
