Outsourcing Sermons?

I'm following in the Blogosphere.

Tell me, have we really come to a point where we use the verb 'to outsource' for the noun 'sermon'??

Is it just me, or have we all gone crazy?

I assume you are referring to the proposed Mars Hill video sermons. I think I was guilty of describing this as 'outsourcing'. :-0

You don't like the term or you don't like the fact of doing this?

What verb would you use for this?

Both, my friend. Both.

I would use the verb 'to press play' when referring to the proposal being discussed.

I wonder if we will outsource fatherhood one day.

I'm too scared to check my post & see if I introduced 'outsource' :-0

On the other hand, it would make Moore College Training simpler if preaching was replaced by pressing play... my 6 year old would be more competent than me...

I detest that word! After working in the marketing sector, that means people losing jobs. To use it for sermons is even more hideous except, of course, when the preacher is really bad at his job.
