America loves their football, so if you are in church on Sundays, you may be keeping a close eye on your clock to see whether or not you will be making it home in time for kickoff. If you are someone who wants to make sure you are home at the right time, we recommend you move out to Butte, Montana and attend Gold Hill Lutheran Church.
This past Sunday, Pastor Tim Christensen, who is a San Francisco 49ers fan, decided to cut his sermon short in order to make it home for the 49ers big divisional round match up with the Carolina Panthers.
“Would you all like to be forgiven for your sins? OK, that’s great, you are,” Christensen said.
He then told his congregation to help themselves to some bread and wine that was up on the podium, before kissing his biceps a la Colin Kaepernick and doing a superman reveal to show his 49ers pride under his robe.
Brilliant! This is our kind of sermon.
