Last week's message from the ELCA Temple of Tackiness down the street:
FAITH IS A JOURNEY, NOT A GUILT TRIP
This would make a kind of sense if it had said "a journey, not a destination." A vague, iffy, questionable kind of sense, to be sure. But it would be a whole lot clearer than "a journey, not a guilt trip."
Sorry, folks, this is what you get for trying to mix one too many plays on words. Now inquiring minds are going to ask what "Faith is a journey" is supposed to mean. The more you think about it, the less sense it makes - particularly when this is contrasted with "a guilt trip." I'm all for stimulating people to ponder the imponderable, as my post on "Jesus kōans" bears witness. But nothing stalls my mental engine like a piece of unprofound, unpithy, unclever unsense - example above.
