Good People.

                            

There are many good people in the world.

Unfortunately Satanism in rock music. celebrity culture, and corporate ownership guarantee that evil is in control.

Good people have no power.

Good people are poisoned and distracted.

We cannot hope to make a better world while this situation continues.

Watch your eyes and your ears - what you watch and what you listen to.

What is it telling you to do?

"Don't change anything, just have a good time."

Meanwhile the rich get richer and government become more corrupt, the rich pay less tax and governments cut welfare.

Two-thirds of the world goes to bed hungry.

And war rages on.

Don't just do what your told.

Challenge the T.V., the music, the government.

While we are controlled there is no hope.

We must act now!

Otherwise the evil people who control our world will make things worse and worse until there is violent revolution.

I Vow.


To be sung to: I Vow to Thee My Country.

I vow to thee my Father,
My Savior, my Friend;
To love you with my whole heart,
To love you 'til the end.

A love that asks no questions,
A love that has no fear;
A love embracing all men,
The strangers and the dear.

And now we say to everyone
Your Father lives on high;
Awaiting our awakening,
Our fervent prayers, our cry!

We may not have an army,
We may not have a store;
But our nation will feed all men,
The richest and the poor.

So open up your broken hearts
And pray to God above;
And He will hear your hopeful prayers
And bless you with His Love.

Self-Criticism.

                            

In Buddhism there is a tradition that the novices can criticize their leadership on one day of every year.

This is to ensure that those in authority do not become complacent.

In Judaism God periodically sends a messenger, a prophet, who criticizes the shepherds of Israel - the political and religious leaders.

Jesus was a prophet in this tradition.

Jesus said, "'For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord."'"  Matthew 23:39 (NRSV)

By this he meant until they accepted the criticism which comes from God.

For "he expected justice, but saw bloodshed, righteousness, but heard a cry."  Isaiah 5:7 (NRSV)

Big Softies.

                                       Hyper-Masculine Muscle Monsters

Death-dealing devils

call you:

Monsters, Beasts, and Animals.

They make you:

Punishers, Enforcers, and Predators.

But I say you are:

Gentle Giants, Big Softies, Angels.

You have Big Hearts.

Do not be afraid of Tears.

Open your Hearts!

Give Love.

And Live!

My People.


I stand upon the Holy Mountain.

Candles lit in fervent prayer.

Looking out across the plain.

To where my people suffer pain.


"Come up!"  He said.  And so I did.

And heard of His undying heart.

To live and love in life abundant.

Trusting His unceasing Love.


To give as we receive is best.

To love and hear the least of these.

To help. To care. To carry. To stay.

Will see us to a bright new day!
