Amos wasn’t much into meetings…

In a different life, I was chairman of the deacons.  It was during a time when deacons were in vogue.  I asked an older friend if he would consider becoming a deacon.  He said he might, but he wasn't much for meetings.  He was more interested in telling people about Jesus.  Therman was a good man and Carrie is a beautiful woman.

"I can't stand your religious meetings. 
I'm fed up with your conferences and conventions. 
I want nothing to do with your religion projects, 
your pretentious slogans and goals. 

I'm sick of your fund-raising schemes, 
your public relations and image making. 
I've had all I can take of your noisy ego-music. 
When was the last time you sang to me? 

Do you know what I want? 
I want justice—oceans of it. I want fairness—rivers of it. 
That's what I want. That's all I want."

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
