Reflecting on Fallon’s move to Leno’s old spot, NPR’s Linda Holmes wrote:
Jimmy Fallon lives on joy, and joy is not solitary. It’s why he’s not at his strongest in plain monologue delivery, and it’s why every single good bit he has is fundamentally a collaboration.
Could you imagine a better way to describe the daily life of a church community?
There is an ancient and ever present heresy that wants to professionalize the body of Christ. We create layers of official Bible readers, official singers and official servants. Then we line up and watch them deliver their professional religious show for an hour on Sundays.
Many churches are either dull and lifeless or forced and over dramatic.
