One church would, and they’re even aiming too. In a David Blaine-esque stunt, they’ve promised to suspend their pastor in a box for three days if 4,000 people show up on Easter.
You can visit the site, but there’s not much more to say about it other than that.
This type of marketing doesn’t sit exceptionally well with me. It communicates that you should go to whichever church will pull the biggest stunt, and it creates a pressure for one-upping other antics. One youth pastor will drink a cheeseburger that has been run through the juicer, but the other will shave his head.
I realize we should be willing to go as far as necessary to make disciples, I just don’t think I’m convinced that these sorts of stunts are a good way to do that.
