When people write about puppets in ministry the article title will be a variation on this; “Puppets – why we use them”.
When you write ‘why’ in the title of an article you are doing it for a couple of reasons – either explaining a brand new concept or method to an audience, OR explaining just why a certain idea is still relevant when it seems to be declining.
I love the muppets. But even in their franchise ‘reboot’ movie in 2011 they had to prove themselves that puppets could still be funny.
Spend your energy on the new dawning idea rather than the idea in the twilight of it’s life.
P.S. I cried from overwhelming waves of nostalgia about 14 separate times in the Muppet movie. I like my puppeteers like I like my parents – they were around for my childhood.
