School of Rock


I wondered aloud as I watched The School of Rock last night about the fascinating and effective tool of inclusion that Jack Black employed in his efforts to spread the joy of rock'n roll (ht: nm). I've a hunch he might be on to something strategic. Many people have spoken of the need in this generation to 'belong to believe' instead of the whole 'believe to belong' traditional approach to mission... Jack Black seems to embody this in his technique. From kids, to rockers to principles and parents... Black really embraces them into his 'culture' and wins them over with his passion and zeal - and reckless abandon to rock. I wonder if we were that convinced of our spirituality and freedom if more people might just want to belong and then become believers? Now that would be something to rock out about!
