Amazing Grace

St John the Baptist Church Healdsburg.png

Amazing grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come,
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.

This closing of Christian churches during Holy Week and Easter is really kinda pissing me off. I notice that the Muslims won’t put up with this closing of their mosques in Europe or anywhere.

Which faith is stronger?

I’m not particularly religious. I haven’t set foot in a church in years, but I believe in Jesus Christ’s teachings. And it really does irritate me that the STATE is pushing the CHURCH around. They are supposed to be separate.

So I was thinking, how do I protest this? Maybe I should go down to the Catholic Church steps a block away and sing “Amazing Grace” at the top of my lungs on Easter. I’ll bring song sheets for the curious to sing along.

Of course in the story folks show up and I pass out song sheets and suddenly humans discover their freedom again. Better voices than my old cracked one take up the cause.

And suddenly the light returns to our dark world.

We’ll see.
