This is it, this year celebrates the 50th anniversary of one of the most important cultural icons of my youth. It was a life-changing discovery for me, one that defined my teens years.
It wasn’t the founding of “intel” or Pierre Trudeau becoming Prime Minister of Canada. It was the introduction of “Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.”
That’s right, the Big Mac has just turned fifty and it hasn’t changed in the five decades since it joined the McDonald’s menu.
But the disturbing news is that in one recent study it was discovered that only one out of five millennials has tried the Big Mac.
Think about it, 80 % of those in our community under the age of 30 have never tasted a Big Mac.
Do you know there are people in our community who have never been inside a church and they have never tasted God’s grace? And that is a tragedy.
If by some bizarre choice you have never experienced McDonald’s fries your loss is temporal although you might get to try them in heaven. But if you’ve never experienced Christ’s forgiveness your loss will be forever. And forever is a long time, especially without a Big Mac and Fries.
