As for the rest of life - so-called 'experience' - who among us is serious enough for that? Or has time enough?
I don't have time to build bridges
I am burning them behind me as I go

If you can't bring yourself to wash in the sacred blood of jesus just ...
Swing a live chicken three times over your head
and slit its throat.

Yeah, I know.
I know, guilty.
Guilty of a lot.
"Swinging Chicken Ritual Divides Orthodox Jews"

Rabbi Shea Hecht plucks a chicken off a truck parked behind a synagogue in Queens, N.Y., and demonstrates how to swing a chicken.

Hecht holds the bird, waves it three times above his head, and says the prayer of Kapparot (or Kapparos, depending on heritage). He prays that his sins will be transferred to the bird and he will escape the divine punishment that he deserves. The prayer is more than 1,000 years old, and countless Orthodox Jews will recite it in the days before Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement, which begins at sundown Sunday. Hecht says waving the chicken isn't the point of this ritual.

"The main part of the service," he says, "is handing the chicken to the slaughterer and watching the chicken being slaughtered. Because that is where you have an emotional moment, where you say, 'Oops, you know what? That could have been me.' "

It's sweet you think of me trucker
and I greatly do appreciate the light shown my way.

I'll keep Jesus closer
so I'll not stray.

Pray for me
and thank you kindly, mr.

My apologies for earlier heated, irrational and defensive post.
I'm a pita.

I had no idea I thought you were feeling guilty :wink:

You know I always liked that Eddie Brickell song a lot
the one that goes
"I'm not aware of too many things"

"Lean on Jesus before he leans on you" is a line from a song by Paul Kraft. A well known Nashville cat who has written such hits as

"Drop Kick Me Jesus through the goal posts of life"

I was down and out in nashville reaping my whirlwind after my girlfriends abortion and living at the Union Gospel Mission on lower broadway when I heard "Lean of Jesus before he leans on you." The song is about that mission. I can never find the lyrics they are so cool. Not what you probably think. I once told a guy to "Lean on Jesus before he leans on you" and he said Fuck Jesus. and then when I walked away from him he came up behind me and hit me upside the head with a baseball bat.

I also heard another song that night I heard Lean on Jesus before...
It was called "What Would You Do If All The Holes in Your Body Healed Up" by a guy named Zilch Fletcher.

I'm guilty, but only guilty in others eyes
I feel no guilt at the moment.
(except I do get guilty at times
and beg apologies)

I think I'm warped feeling a victim of religion
and it's definitely a lesson I should work on and heal.

I suffer at the hands of my own ideas;
thinking I'm judged by others'
thinking I'm accused by rightmost types.

I've issues trucker,
seriously have to heal them.

But, I whole heartedly love my Jesus
the same Jesus my Nana wrote letters
to me about
saying he loves me and will always
forever be my friend
he doesn't care about my sinning ways
as long as I keep him.

I keep him.

Maybees I'll find the words to that song for you.

My favorite was from Sunday School...
"It's bubbling, it's bubbling
it's bubbling in my soul.
I'm singing and laughing
since Jesus made me whole."

I think I'm afraid to see all the holes heal up
I don't want to be one of them
they freak me out.

No clue where I developed the idea that the whore who came to Jesus
was closer to him than most who came sinless.
But, I did and I cling to the image.

heated, irrational and defensive post
I think at least 15 percent probably more of my posts have been heated irrational and defensive.

Walking wounded
I keep odd hours
It is not healthy
Maybe an addiction I got from the road

I just woke up thinking about the walking wounded,
the emotionally wounded
the mentally ill
those with enough controll to keep on functioning without being institutionalized.

Someone wrote a book called the evolution of god
karen armstrong I think
I have heard her on so many talk shows
I tried reading the book but got bored
maybe it was too deep for me
too schoolary but the idea interests me

When I was at the mission for a couple weeks we had to listen to sermons before we could eat dinner. I wished I had gone hungry sometimes.
At first I felt so special
you know chosen people and all that
but then I found out what we were chosen for

Jesus loves me yes I know
But I would rather pay rent.

That abortion haunts me till this day
She was not a woman to make that choice lightly
I can't exactly say it is guilt that haunts me now
More like sorrow for the perdicament I placed her in.
It has been thirty six years.
I am grateful that she had the choice it was a decision I could understand
I don't want to say no more about it
except she made the decision based on the needs of her two daughters.
I get along with Catholics well but there is a movie I saw about fifty years ago where a woman dies in childbirth but her child lives. The priest vary smugly (says that
hell I am wandering rambling
thinking of
Molly Ivins
Who wrote a column about the texas legislature (mostly men) were considering a anti abortion bill.
She said that they were so ignorant about a woman's reproductive system that some women's lobbyists went to Austin wearing body stockings with the reprodudctive organs drawn on them.

I get along fine with Jesus, I just don't want no truck with his Jewish father.

if you have waded through this mess take two aspirins while I edit for typos.

Wireman has me hooked on spontaneous, first though best thought
maybe so
but I am pretty embarrassed by some of the things I have blurted.

Maybe my favorite nursery rhyme is one I heard at Quaker First Day school. "Old friends are golden, new friends are silver"

RE: christian politicians and patriarchal gods
I think women have to control their own reproductive destiny
I need to think this out
please give me a bit to think it through and edit
I am grateful that she had that choice to make
to decide what was best for the two children she already had.
I will repost this again as an addendum

I'm constantly embarrassed after I write
I think it's o.k. to be

Trucker, I know what you mean
the things that trifle with your gut
or soul or what you name it
they can't be drowned out easily
it can haunt us the most.

once upon a time mingo deleted his artlog
hundreds of posts
I have done the same
I don't know what was on his mind when he did it
but I know why I did it
"My dearest friends are perfect strangers
They wish me freedom and self destruction" the west Texas Hemingway."
I am thinking about asking doreen to remove my artlog. Till I decide I am keeping it locked. As much as possible. I do not want to be responsible for any more destruction of other peoples posts.

I didn't know you were mingo.
I'm a stranger and know nothing at this point.
I may never know, to be exact.

Did I say I was mingo?
I don't think so.
Sorry about the confusion

No I am not mingo.
I said he deleted his artlog
and I have done the same.

I suppose I could have worded that better.
