The Real Score Board

February 25, 2017

As we gather for worship this weekend, time to check the score —

“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, in Amos 5:21, The Message version
