I’m afraid my age is showing. When I used the picture of the cartoon character Mr. Magoo as an illustration I got blank stares from the teenagers down front. When I asked them if they knew who Mr. browser test tool Magoo was they shrugged their shoulders. Another cultural icon gone forever. When I asked a couple of college students after the sermon about my statement, “I’m afraid at times the church is having an affair with Madison Avenue” they told me they didn’t know what Madison Avenue was. Wikipedia reports, “The term ‘Madison Avenue’ is often used metonymously for advertising, and Madison Avenue became identified with the advertising industry after the explosive growth in this area in the 1920s.” Alas, a cartoon character from the 60’s and a metonymy made popular in the 20’s perhaps don’t communicate to the younger generation in this new millennium. Hopefully, the scriptures (written cheap viagra in the 50’s – that’s not the 1950’s but the real 50’s!) were more relevant and timely than the illustrations.
On another note several asked about my son Jeremy and his move to Dallas. He and Adrienne left Saturday and he will begin classes at Baylor Dental School this fall.
