ONE WAY 6-11-17

Celebrate starting somewhere

Feel the hope flood

Pick out a psalm

To pump up your charm

Get out of the mud

Put your Hope in Jesus

Put downs leave you depressed

Prayers are mindfully blessed

 

SIN-trifugal force is one way/ By giving God your praise/ There are always difficulties/ Don’t procrastinate backwards another day

 

Life isn’t all that bad

We can make choices

Be happy be…

EAST-

     East is Washat religion and the proper place to have your feet facing when you are laid to rest in your grave. Louie Dick my elder told me this. Louie was a well-respected Indian cowboy from Thorn Hollow/Gibbon area east of Mission, Oregon on the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

Stay on a comeback

You’re worthy of Bible verse

 

Chorus: Surrender to comeback/ Fighters for a spiritual life/ Surrender keep the rope slack/ The world’s noose is much too tight/ Pray for the spiritual daylight to come out tonight

 

Chill for a…

THE SERMON 6/10/2017

 

 

Jesus call our name tomorrow

We need a start over

Take us out of the wilderness

We need a new purpose

Constant prayer

We’re moving forward

We’ll see you there

Be our reward

 

Jesus found us out in the wilderness/ Jesus we pray we come into you fast/ We have the best seats in your Sunday school class/ Jesus please help us pass

 

When we start over

One, we will not…

REWIRE 6-15-17

Blowin’ up

The mind

Wanting a Father

Wired constantly

We unwind

With the usual

Social whines

This load

Is hotwired

For rewire

 

Girl if you don’t like the way I fall/ I’m rewiring this criminal/ Girl if I’m down/ God wants to know one of me in every town/ Girl if I’m still a fool/ Will you there good and true

 

She’s preached to me

Laid hands on me

Again what’s…

FATHER I’M BLEEDIN’ 6-23-17

We were raised

To raise hell

Good people rested

While I ran

The rodeo trail

We all ran

With the

Windows down

Oh Father

Ain’t we macho men

Chorus:

We  sons-a- preacher’s ain’t all/ A bunch of Sister Christian’s/Or sissified itches with lip lockin’ rituals/We had hard core men for role models/We explored the bars, guitar strings, and beer bottles/We kissed the girls we loved the world/The…
