Just in case . . .
you haven't yet seen this "Lion King meets PCUSA" opening "worship" processional. I think one commenter asks the right question(s): "Uh, is it Christians pretending to be pagans, or is it pagans pretending to be Christian?" Another commenter wonders if the skunks were employed to provide the incense. You can read these and other comments here, here, and here. The sad thing is that it wouldn't surprise me to see something like this at some LCMS function someday. After all, we already have the "dancing girls" and the "Holy-Spirit-whirly-streamer-thingys." Why not add some animals and big puppets, etc.? I hope not. I hope we can finally have the kind of serious, honest, deliberate theological dialogue our President-elect proposes and begin turning away from the trend we have seen to turn the Divine Service into a circus. We'll see!
