    I like how you pointed out that:

    your new music director is black and that she brought “some of her people” with her

    that the whole issue of handing out tracts involves a certain level of hubris, even if many of those who are local are Jewish

    that you have a prayer time each time, which I do too and will continue to pray for you.

    I always try to remember that each of us in the Body of Christ has our role to play — even Marvin. God bless him as he does his best to be the best Marvin he can be.

    Mr. Marvin – Oh my. The song is very inspirational 🙂 Have you really “changed” though? You don’t seem any more heterorific than before — you just seem to not be doing anything in the romantic realm at all, kind of like my mother who says, “Man? Who needs a man? What would I do with him if I had one? He’d just be one more thing to dust around.” Peace and many blesssings …

    Nillo, you ask Marvin some good questions. Of course when I was in the midst of my ex-gay treatment, I don’t think I could have or would have answering the question honestly. I was deceived, so I couldn’t give a straight answer (or queer answer).

    Of course Marvin lately has been filling his life with so much Jesus, I worry if her is losing himself. Of course he would just rebuke me in Jesus name, but hey, I am used to that.

    “Watered down liberal garbage.” What a nice description of the beliefs of other Christians who do not happen to agree with you or with a small branch of Christianity…the fundamentalist branch. I could give an equally offensive description of fundamentalist theology but refrain from doing so out of respect for fellow Christians.

    Very nice blurb of run together words. The song at the end is nice too. It’s interesting that you say that when you are handing out tracts, those who drive subarus never take them. I sometimes drive a subaru, like for instance when I went to work on Sunday, and I would definitely take a tract if you were handing them out in front of a strip mall here in Bangor. Jesus loves me too!

    Well, Marvin…I was quite mesmerized and hypnotized by the New Age psychedelics as I listened to your words…nice touch (although I’m pretty dizzy now).

    Perhaps you should stick to preaching and avoid singing in the future…
