Karl Barth

"If the question what God can do forces theology to be humble, the question what is commanded of us forces it to concrete obedience."

Paris 3 A.M.























In Paris With You
 
Don't talk to me of love. I've had an earful
And I get tearful when I've downed a drink or two.
I'm one of your talking wounded.
I'm a hostage. I'm maroonded.
But I'm in Paris with you.

Yes I'm angry at the way I've been bamboozled
And resentful at the mess I've been through.
I admit I'm on the rebound
And I don't care where are we bound.
I'm in Paris with you.

Do you mind if we do not go to the Louvre
If we say sod off to sodding Notre Dame, 
If we skip the Champs Elysées
And remain here in this sleazy

Old hotel room
Doing this and that
To what and whom
Learning who you are, 
Learning what I am.

Don't talk to me of love. Let's talk of Paris, 
The little bit of Paris in our view.
There's that crack across the ceiling
And the hotel walls are peeling
And I'm in Paris with you.

Don't talk to me of love. Let's talk of Paris.
I'm in Paris with the slightest thing you do.
I'm in Paris with your eyes, your mouth, 
I'm in Paris with... all points south.
Am I embarrassing you? 
I'm in Paris with you.

The Left Gone Nuts

Why is it that every time a liberal is in office, he decides to move to the center? Honestly, the nation has already voted for you as a liberal so act as a liberal and live as a liberal. You don't have to work to be the President for the REDNECK INC., because whether they like or not you are their President. So stop moving to the right and move the country forward into progressive thinking land.

A Simple Prayer


God,

I find myself on a strange place 
Where the proclamation of the good news is merely a words.
And is it that all that it is?
Merely words to be proclaimed!

Where is the power?
The change...
The transformation that takes a hold of us all.
Doesn't the power of the gospel transform us to be  
            Truly God's children
Who have in their heart 
  The inscription of God's commandments?

Perhaps, I am naive, and I have been called that.

But is the change that it is in being baptized with Christ truly real?
   If not, then why follow this proclamation?
     Why live a pretentious baptism of water and fire? 

Can we truly live as we have been truly forgiven?

Preparation is Half the Fun!
