Matthew 25

July 13, 2021
For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,  I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’  Then they also will answer, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?’ Then he will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ 

You Never Can Tell

They bought a souped-up jitney, was a cherry red '53
And drove it down to Orleans to celebrate their anniversary
It was there where Pierre was wedded to the lovely mademoiselle
"C'est la vie," say the old folks, "it goes to show you never can tell"

In another younger day I could dream the time away
In the universe inside my room
And the world was really mine from June till September
And if it wasn’t really so I was lucky not to know
And I was lucky not to wonder why
‘Cause the summertime is all that I remember
Cheryl Wheeler
Performed by Maura O'Connell - lead vocals, Jerry Douglas - dobro, Russ Barenberg - guitar, and Edgar Meyer - bass for  Kentucky Educational Television's "The Lonesome Pine Specials"

He's A Rebel

July 5, 2021
If they don't like him that way
They won't like me after today
I'll be standing right by his side when they say
"He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good"

If Maga Christianity Is Christianity—I’m Not A Christian And Neither Is Jesus

June 28, 2021
Every day I get Christian family members and former church friends and total strangers, writing to let me know me they feel sorry for me, that they’re worried for my soul, that they’re praying for my immediate repentance, and to remind me that I’m not a “real Christian.”

That used to bother me.

Now, it encourages me.

Now I see that their “real Christianity” isn’t anything I want to be a part of anyway.

 If being a Christian means embracing a man who boasted that he could grab women by the genitalia, I’m out.

 If being a Christian means denying the votes of people of color or justifying their executions at traffic stops, I’ll pass.

 If being a Christian means nurturing mindless conspiracies and shunning safeguards and stoking hate crimes, I’m gonna opt out.

 If being a Christian means pretending a deadly terrorist attack on our Capitol was just a “group of tourists,” I denounce it as a my former religion.
