LeBron-ocentric preaching

Thanks to Pat for pointing out this video clip (HT SI.com). In this video, a pastor in South Carolina offers a reflection on how LeBron James can serve as a shining example for people everywhere. And, in the process, he models what is so clearly missing in the pulpits of America today: LeBron-ocentric preaching. If we just focused more on the Chosen One, all would be well in the world.

If for some reason this did not satisfy your appetite for LeBron-ocentric preaching, you can see the rest of the sermon here, here, and here.

  1. I’m sure LBJ is deeply moved by all this attention from the church! 😉

  2. I think there were more references to LBJ than either God, Lord, or Jesus (maybe not combined but still). Kind of weird!

  3. I wonder if we will see this in any forthcoming hermeneutics primer?! 🙂
