meetings, meetings, meetings!

Well, we haven’t posted scripture for awhile, so from our Old Testament reading:

(God talking:)
"When you come before me,
   whoever gave you the idea of acting like this,
Running here and there, doing this and that—
   all this sheer commotion in the place provided for worship? 
"Quit your worship charades.
   I can’t stand your trivial religious games:
Monthly conferences, weekly Sabbaths, special meetings—
   meetings, meetings, meetings—I can’t stand one more!
Meetings for this, meetings for that. I hate them!
   You’ve worn me out!
I’m sick of your religion, religion, religion,
   while you go right on sinning."
(from Isaiah 1)

And as much as it seems planned, our New Testament reading is from a totally different website:

"If that animal blood and the other rituals of purification were effective in cleaning up certain matters of our religion and behavior, think how much more the blood of Christ cleans up our whole lives, inside and out.  Through the Spirit, Christ offered himself as an unblemished sacrifice, freeing us from all those dead-end efforts to make ourselves respectable, so that we can live all out for God." (Hebrews 9:13-15)

There, that should make up for our lack of scripture-posting!

So quit running around in meaningless circles!  Just sit.  Wait.  Smell the… hay.
