June 15th is fast approaching and with it comes my “gettin older” 57th birthday. As a minister, one of the challenges is understanding that some of our “old” illustrations just do not connect with younger generations since they were not even born when what we reference took place. I still make this goofy mistake at times.
Comedian Tim Hawkins addresses the getting older issue by recommending aging Rock Stars keep singing but upgrade the lyrics in their songs so that they are commensurate with their age appropriate experiences. Not only is this hilarious,but Hawkins demonstrates some very creative musical talent. The parody gets better with every song he performs. Awesome!
