As we are looking at two of our larger religions this week, I think it would be interesting to look at how Christianity and Judaism are evolving in modern times. I recently attended a Bar Mitzvah and was pleasantly surprised when the Rabbi grabbed up a guitar and a Star of David tambourine and started jamming. As my mother’s church has a drum circle, this should not have been too surprising, but it still struck me as oddly out of place next to the traditionalism of much of the ceremonial rites.
Yet, shouldn’t a religion actually reach the people?
And if the purpose of religion is to help people reach a deeper meaning, does it matter if that meaning in reached through reading a text in a language no longer used or through a fun song?
This week I would like you to read this article suggesting that perhaps it is time for Synagogues to follow the currently working model of the Mega-Church.
What are your thoughts on the Jewish faith following the model which seems to work so well for so many?

What are your thoughts on how these mega churches are working?
Do they retain the same basic tenets and faiths of the smaller, more local parishes?
Here is an example of one I stumbled across many years ago and saw how people could be drawn to the message as well as the theatricality of the sermon.
