If you mete out kindness, expect kindness in return.

If you mete out violence, expect violence in return.

If you meted out kindness but got violence, Pray for yourself & them.

And if you meted out violence & got kindness, Praise God, again & again!

Take your stand with words stout and strong

Against perceived and actual wrong

Blast the watch-trumpet loud and long

But don’t forget to sing.


Write your booklet or your tract

Marshall every “fact-let” and fact

Be both punctual and exact

But don’t forget to sing.


Sing of God’s salvation full and free,

Sing of Pentecost without gold or fee,

Sing “once though blind, now I see.”

Saints ought oft to sing!

Sing of grace to meet each trial,

Sing of love in the hardest mile,

Sing of Heaven’s up-coming smile.

Sing! God’s holy people sing!

The church-owned-parsonage should not be the best house in the congregation, nor the worst (a congregational decision). The car the parson drives shouldn’t be the nicest in the lot, nor the one in the worst repair (& that brother, is /your/ decision).

Rev 1.10-11a

“I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

“Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last…”



Want to eat better but must buy your fruit? Avoid fruits whose beginning digit is 8.

“8 = I hate.” It is GMO (genetically modified organism).

“9 is fine.” Organic – if you can afford. (not my jingles). If you buy fruit with 4 read on

“Wash if a 4, has had spray or more” (jingle-eab)
