The Gospel According to Macaulay Culkin

This past weekend, I again offered some leadership at 5 Oaks for a youth Confirmation retreat. The theme was based on Incarnation and Image; surprisingly, Macaulay Culkin featured prominently in the content I presented.

Hearkening back to Michael Jackson's video for "Black or White" (where an 11-year old Macaulay rocked and rapped) and using numerous clips from Michael Stipe-produced movie Saved! (with adult Macaulay playing a wheelchair-bound Christian High School student), it wasn't until we were well into the weekend that I realized much Culkin-content was incarnated in my message.

Cue the Home Alone aftershave scream.
