Rolling Deep :: The Pastoral Entourage



The entourage is a funny thing.
Everyone has either been in one, had one, or hated one.
I’ve always been in one.
Mooching off the gravy train of my friends success.
Ain’t no shame in my game.
I once stayed in Ryan Seacrest’s condo because I was in the entourage of one of his entourage.
I roll like that holmes.
Entourages are legit.
They are exclusive.
They are protective of the Entourageeeee.
I see them as they are rolling into a club, rolling into a show, rolling into a restaurant, rolling into a store…
Rolling into a church conference, rolling into a church service…
You know, those places where you need to make a splash.
[Insert squealing brakes sound here] It just FEELS good to roll deep.
What’s that?
You say Jesus had an entourage of disciples?
I’m sorry but I can’t imagine them rolling in 12 deep in 240 fps.
Maybe rolling in 12 deep and then splitting up to throw some healing and love on some people.
See here is the difference.
When Jesus rolled in He had an inviting presence.
People flocked and He welcomed it.
We on the other hand, have the tendency to roll deep with a protective nature vs an inviting nature.
What has been your experience with the pastoral entourage? Do you see it as a necessary evil or a maybe a bit of people drinking their own KoolAid?
