I want a new. . .

I want a New Drug. Remember that song by Huey Lewis? Can we change drug to church? And you to You?

I want a new drug
One that won’t make me sick
One that won’t make me crash my car
Or make me feel three feet thick
I want a new drug
One that won’t hurt my head
One that won’t make my mouth too dry
Or make my eyes too red
One that won’t make me nervous
Wondering what to do
One that makes me feel like I feel when I’m with you
When I’m alone with you
I want a new drug
One that won’t spill
One that don’t cost too much
Or come in a pill
I want a new drug
One that won’t go away
One that won’t keep me up all night
One that won’t make me sleep all day
One that won’t make me nervous
Wondering what to do
One that makes me feel like I feel when I’m with you
When I’m alone with you
I’m alone with you baby
I want a new drug
One that does what it should
One that won’t make me feel too bad
One that won’t make me feel too good
I want a new drug
One with no doubt
One that won’t make me talk too much
Or make my face break out
One that won’t make me nervous
Wondering what to do
One that makes me feel like I feel when I’m with you
When I’m alone with you


Is anyone else interested in doing church differently (than what we've seen)?? There's some pretty interesting stuff happening in England, Australia, and New Zealand. Plleeeeease... I don't have that much bus fare.

What's going out there that isn't happening here? Can't wait to hear.

In the meantime, I have learned to squeeze the most meaning and interaction out of whatever situation I'm in. There is one thing that doesn't change, wherever we are, so is God, and therefore, life is good.

Absolutely. God is in the midst. Closer than our breath. Thanks for a good reminder that what kind of attitude we bring to it helps determine the experience and outcome.

The song is meant to be a humorous parallel to being in situations that don't reflect that reality. Moving together in God,in His presence, as purely as possible responding to Him, and being very real (help--words escape me) and not religious is the preferred ideal. "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof" does make us sick, hurt our head, make us nervous, make us want to crash our car, etc. (as per Huey.)
