Me too..!

"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."
God [taken from Amos 5:21-25 (The Message)]

Me too..!

Love this passage! Actually used it when i was leading prayers one time...

There's actually a band i got into when i lived in Oz, Soteria music ministries.. well they wrote this song called "let justice roll". If you haven't heard it before you should it's very powerful, and relevant to this post i think.....
