3D Christmas Services: Gimmicky or Culturally Relevant?
Fellowship Church in Dallas made headlines this past weekend by doing a 3D Christmas. Each attendee was given a pair of 3D glasses. According to new reports there were 3 three minute 3D videos that were part of the service.
According to Fellowship’s senior pastor, Ed Young Jr. they learned that the Church by the Glades in Coral Springs, Fla., would be using 3-D for Christmas services this year, and decided Fellowship should follow suit.
Church by the Glades’ announcement of their 3D Christmas was written up by Mashable.
3D is a hot trend right now. A ton of 3D movies are being made, 3D TVs are in the works, and the 3D web might not be far behind. So, you could make the case that Fellowship and Church by the Glades are capitalizing on a hot trend.
On the other hand, you might thing this 3D stuff is kind of gimmicky. After all, unless you’re attending an Internet church or a video venue, every Christmas service is 3D, right?
