I just made a post "Old Memphis TV we miss" when I depressed to Al Green.
Al Green in the 1970's was a World famous (well now, I live in China and hear his songs in bars now) musical artist.
He is now a minister. Does he have fans who come to Memphis, maybe for Elvis or whatever go to his church? Like I said, at one time, this guy was toe to toe with Marvin Gaye and his songs are classics now. How many people have come to him and asked to be married by him? Hell, I am white married to a Chinese woman and would love to have a Christian wedding by Reverend Al. That would so rule.
Of course, it seems Green eschews this. But I am interested how many international people come to Memphis just to hear Al Green preach? So much of Memphis is still about Elvis while this living rock star is still around. And a rocking African American church is not that much different from a rock concert. One thing I have read was that a sermon is very long, like four hours or so. Dunno. Are there any whites in his congregation. I think I would be very welcomed, but not so much because I believe I would believe on the dogma as to see Revered Green.
