How's this for a reality show?
Priest Idol (I'm not kidding...click here for more details) is the name of the show and it is scheduled to air in the UK starting today. It's about a Wheaton grad who's from Pittsburgh but is now a vicar in England. A camera crew followed him for a year documenting his efforts in trying to turn a dying parish church around. Sure sounds like a merger of "Survivor" and "Fear Factor" to me!
I've got to find out if anyone around here knows the guy. I also want to see if we can get to watch an episode here. Hmmm... wonder if they're going to call for auditions across the pond?
P.S. Christianity Today Online has an interview with the guy and also includes some more news links on the program.
