Don’t tell us, show us

I was on the first day of a comedy course in London yesterday. I had a fabulous time letting my ‘inner idiot’ play, and learning a whole bunch of stuff. One of the things that especially stuck with me was the mantra, “Don’t tell me, show me!
I’m struck by how much the trickle down of Rationality pervades what we do in Church, we seem to be locked into, “Don’t Show us, tell us!”
I could write a whole bunch of stuff about this but the irony of using ‘tell’ to advocate ‘show’ is not wasted on me. Let’s have a coffee …. I’ll show you what I mean
