Finishing up at PTS in 12/76, I interviewed somewhere south of Canada and north of Pittsburgh.
Being hosted by the leading church lady in the club convinced me to look elsewhere (see KDVII); however, a cartoon from some paper in Iron City caught my attention and is tucked away in some book as a speck-inspecting caution.
It has a bald preacher inviting the congregation to pray, "And now our hearts go out for all of those pure and perfect newsmen who are searching for sin in others."
Auto-suggested righteousness is not limited to the church.
I'm wondering if HRC, JM, and BHO will be so smeared and slandered and sullied by 11/4 that either of New York's two most recent Governors will be tempting candidates.
Well, at least they didn't do coke, oops, or, uh, inhale.
At this rate, we're going to have to discount everyone who grew up in the 60s.
Speaking of Governors, you've got to wonder what has prompted New Mexico's to endorse BHO even after the Illinois' junior Senator's pastor disaster.
Carville's funny to us but not to Richardson Judas metaphor aside, the Governor was a major player, confidant, and buddy during WJC's reign.
What does he know that we don't know; and given BHO's JW heel, why haven't all of those big shots like TK, TD, CD, and the rest of 'em who lust for more access to the Pennsylvania Avenue palace jumped ship and aligned elsewhere?
Maybe my two insiders are right (see KDI).
One of my VMTC mentors recently wrote to tell me that she's in the ABHRC crowd too.
I was refreshed.
Confirmed discernments are comforting even when cautionary; for, at least, we know our choices.
Speaking of VMTC (Victorious Ministry Through Christ), it's the best instrument for severing enslaving bondages to the past and enabling holiness and total commitment to Jesus in my experience.
In short, VMTC helps people to become, as George Barna wrote in Revolution which every mainline and mega and corporate church should pass out on Sundays, "thoroughly Christian by viewing every moment of life through a spiritual lens and making every decision in light of Biblical principles...a Revolutionary Christian...reflects the very ideals and principles that characterized the life and purpose of Jesus Christ and that advance the Kingdom of God...not willing to play religious games and aren't interested in being part of a religious community that is not intentionally and aggressively advancing God's Kingdom. They are people who want more of God - much more - in their lives. And they are doing whatever it takes to get it."
If you'd like to know more about it, let me know and I'll put you in touch with one of my mentors who will tell you how to sign up.
Getting back to Election 2008 and the worst fears attached to it, Biblical election sounds better all the time.
If you'd like to know more about that, let me know and I'll connect you to an old gray dog who's more articulate about this good news than most members of the WARC.
Blessings and Love!
