U.S. Postal Secrets
I think PostSecret.com is a fascinating web site. People are desperate for artistic expression and uninhibited confession. What can the church learn from this?
I particularly think that this postcard expresses well the U.S. fascination with celebrity. A friend of mine said just this weekend that we like to build people up and watch them fall. For some reason we enjoy falling in love with Michael Jackson, Nick & Jessica, Brad & Jen, Jen & Ben, etc., and we enjoy watching as their fairy tales end. Maybe this person's secret belongs to most of us.
