During the Christmas season, you might have seen that odd TikTok video of drummers suspended in midair as they played their instruments. This was all part of a Christmas extravaganza at a Baptist congregation in Texas. They literally have a cast of thousands for the event. This is how it was described:
A press release from the church, which reportedly has over 50,000 members, describes the show as a “visually stunning multimedia event.” In addition to flying acts and an expansive cast, the show also reportedly features special effects, an LED video wall, and a 50-piece orchestra playing an original music score.
I do a weekly video for my church on where our faith and life intersect. My video of a few weeks ago was about just this issue. You can watch it below. You can also read a longer piece on this on my Substack.
What do you think of the flying drummers?
