YAHOO!!!!!!!! Start's off line!!!!! [for a while] :-)

Hi! 

Well, not completely off line, but sort of in a cave.
Yes, my Vigil work continues but mentally I'm in a hugely
different focus for a time.

I will continue to use this lull in DC Political activity to
devote as much uninterrupted time to matters of the Spirit,
as possible - studying and responding to the Words
and Works of Christ Jesus.

You may or may not see bursts of activity on the
Spiritual Front from me, but on the Climate Change,
Health Care, Global Issues front I'm not even looking
beyond the major headlines. 

I don't expect to return to normal in that regard till
after New Years.

Your Loving brother,

DON'T MISS. My friends, you must meet our sister Nancy. Christlike Shero Nancy.

Nancy, just a bit younger than me, lives in rural West Virginia.

A month or so she was beaten for intervening on behalf of a 90
year old neighbor who was being thrown out of her home by her
son who is after her money. Then Nancy was threatened with
arrest thanks to the politically connected son.

She rescues animals of all sorts, some of whom other neighbors
torture cuz it tortures Nancy. They want the animals, including
bears, out there to be killed, not with Nancy and friends where
they can be protected.

At times her life is threatened.

She takes her witness of Universal Love into area churches who
adore her and her singing, until they realize she's the Real Deal,
Truly Christlike, and then they persecute her.

There's more, but it is all out of the same cloth. "If you pick up
your cross...." "Love as I have Loved." CJ She does.

Yup. Christlike Nancy.

DON'T MISS her Christ-mass message to us:

"Subject: Season of LIGHT is Season of LIFE..Season of LOVE..THE LIGHT ! My message to you.... "Family" is this... Christmas to ME is known as the
" season of LIGHT..." When Jesus was born "WISE" men noticed a SHINING
STAR.. IT LED THEM THROUGH THE DARKNESS to this amazing sight and
PRESENT( Ultimate gift ) TO THE UNIVERSE... JESUS ! I am a believer, but in
being a believer I comprehend that MY FAMILY IS ALL INCLUSIVE.. ALLELUIA !!
I have Moslem brothers and sisters , sons and daughters etc and I have
Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist,etc family, along with Christians and even NON
believers in my family. The KEY !? Ahhhhh... the "KEY" is the gift we give
ourselves to accept what that infant in that manger was born to bring and
teach us more about... the ULTIMATE "POWER OF ONE" ! TO BE LOVING !!!
Look at the healthy POWER humans can CHOOSE to have... LOVE is STRENGTH
and COURAGE and TRUTH.. HOPE... PEACE... GOD !!! GOD IS LOVE... :-)
"ALL-MIGHTY" "ALL POWERFUL".... What it all boils down to is this... What
and how we choose to think and WHERE our thoughts come from.. HERE
AGAIN... "THE KEY" ! :-) Our hearts and souls are meant to be BANKS... CREDIT
UNIONS.... INVESTMENT BROKER CENTER....GENUINE PERSONAL/SPIRITUAL :-)
AND MOST POWERFUL "HEALTH INSURANCE"... :-) Affects OUR HEALTH ( spiritual,
mental AND physical) as well as the world around us ! The LIGHT can live within
us... the LOVE that can conquer ALL... the POWER TO USE "TRUTH" TO NOT
ONLY SET US FREE... BUT THE "LIGHT", "LOVE" ! Walking the Walk is worth it
family... its worth it... sometimes we feel drained, frustrated, disgusted, discouraged..
etc... So THEN.. WE REACH OUT... TO THE LIGHT ! We are ONE.. those of us that
UNDERSTAND our mission here... let us continue to march WITH LOVE IN THE
LIGHT AND LIVE !! BRIGHTLY... LOVINGLY... TRUTHFULLY...UNITED IN PURPOSE...
AND HOPE.. MERRY CHRISTMAS ! HAPPY HOLIDAYS ! EACH DAY OF OUR LIVES
CAN BE AFFIRMATIONS OF OUR TRUE PURPOSE... remember the "POWER OF ONE"...
Just imagine the POWER that tiny baby boy had in that stable manger so long ago...
and when we greet our family on the streets and when we touch one another and
think thoughts of LOVE and PEACE we are reminded of the GLORY and POWER of
LOVE... That infant... THE PRINCE OF PEACE.. is right with us.. every step of the
way.... SHINE !!!!!!
LOVE YOU,
Nancy"

---- and see here the "corrections" from Nancy in what I wrote of her-----

Oh bless you my brother- Let me correct the area I live in.. I am actually in Virginia- Surrounded by RICH "conservatives" :-). The fact GOD planted me here is pretty amazing. I am 72 miles West of DC in the Piedmont Valley surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mtns. I am only 45 mins from Charlottesville and 45 mins from Warrenton. The work I have done for "pay" has always been human service work,but since compassion and respect for creation is all relative I have been blessed to understand the connection with respecting and loving all beings. The other side of that is my RESPONSIBILITY to be a VOICE for the VOICELESS... So many people never understand when I tell them that I work with HUMANS along with the animals.. that HAVE NO VOICE OR CHOICE. I find in this area among the wealthy (the LOST) that so often the "RURAL POOR" are the WEALTHY ONES... I try to assist some of my brothers and sisters here to grab hold of their COMPASSION they have developed from STRUGGLING.. and let THAT COMPASSION be their STRENGTH ! OH MY !!! THE POWER COMPASSION CAN HAVE... By the way-- the Black Bear poaching is BIG- The black market for Bear parts has the mafia behind it.. The parts are said to be used in Chinese Medicine ( gall bladder and paws of the bears ) Wealthy suits and tie types pay these mountain men to TAKE the bears and the parts.. So the SUITS get richer and the Mtn men fall more into the darkness.. I have seen some miracles tho ! lol I have one amazing story of a man that had put a gun to my head over a bear he had in leg hold trap.. WE ARE NOW FRIENDS... and I helped him prepare for his GED and he passed !!!!! ( 3 yrs ago ) Point is... LOVE CONQUERS ALL... and SOMETIMES-- we need to use TOUGH LOVE... but always laced with some compassion and understanding... no matter what.. The mountains are beautiful and I hope you all can come and visit and spend a day taking in the gifts of nature here.. LOVE YOU

Quiet time with Jesus today. OMG. OMG.

I'm building a new blog, working toward that end at least - a "red word"
version of Jesus' words in the bible.  His words are all I've been interested
in within the Bible for a decade or so, yet I find it extremely difficult or
impossible to find just his words anywhere.

Sooooooo, I'm making a site JesusTheFirstChrist.blogspot.com . 
Step one I've found a word doc version
of the New American Bible (Catholic - good anyway! :-)   ) and I'm red lining
His words.  Listening to magnificent Christ-mass music at the same time.
Only problem is all the crying that wafts over me.

Step 2 I'll add his words to the blog.  No idea how fast it will progress.

Love you all.  Much.

Merry Christ-mass!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! From our Christlike Nancy.

The Christ is reborn in me today.

As I celebrate the birth of Jesus today, I give thanks for His life, example and teachings.

He expressed the full potential of the Christ, leading the way for me to follow, telling me

I can do the things He did. The divinity in Jesus is also the seed of potential in me.

On this day of rebirth and new beginnings, I acknowledge my birthright as a child of the Most High.

I give thanks for the journey to this place of opportunity and for those who have traveled with me--

my teachers in many forms. All that I have experienced, the challenging and the sublime, has

brought me to this moment of awareness that Christ in me is my hope of glory.

The Christ is reborn in me today.


Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place,
which the Lord has made known to us.--Luke 2:15

CHRISTMAS, I DIDN'T SEE THE MIRACLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TILL THIS MORNING!!!!!!

Jesus wasn't the Miracle. 

Jesus was the RESULT you'd EXPECT from the Miracle!

So what is this Miracle I just "got?"

No, it isn't the made-up stuff about the "virgin birth," winged
angels, and the like.  That's make believe, and it has killed
over 1900 years time, and millions of people.

It wasn't that there was something special about baby
Jesus per se - THERE WAS NOT.  He was just like any other,
EVERY OTHER baby.

Know what It was??????????  I didn't see it either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Miracle was, that for whatever set of reasons, people
from all over the world saw that this baby was precious,
more precious than any treasure, and they dropped their
selfish lives, left their over-privileged biological families,
and at extreme physical sacrifice, out of Love, lavished
their Love on the underprivileged baby Jesus, and his biological family, WHO
WERE AMONG THE LEAST OF THESE OUR FAMILY born in
the streets - poor - among the poorest.  And of course, that
is what Healthy, Loving Family does, right?  Focuses on,
devotes itself NOT to the MOST of these in the Family,
but the Least, the Needy, the Sick, the Poor IN THE FAMILY!

The Miracle was that strangers, foreigners, "enemies,"
not-family... realized that they WERE One Family - no double
standards - and for a moment they LIVED IT.

So Jesus never knew any different!  HE THOUGHT EVERYONE
WAS HIS BROTHER AND SISTER, CUZ THAT IS HOW HE CAME
INTO THE WORLD!  And that's why Jesus remained the
Christ (repository of Universal Love, One-Family Member)
that we are all born as!  AND IT CHANGED JESUS. 

AND IT CHANGED THE WORLD, A LITTLE.

AND IF WE'D SEE, AND UNDERSTAND THE REAL MIRACLE
IT WOULD SAVE THE WORLD. AND NOTHING ELSE WILL.
EVER.

THERE ARE A FEW MOMENTS LEFT FOR US TO DO SO.

It will take a Miracle to Save us. 

Universal Love is the Miracle.


MERRY CHRISTMAS!


It is awesome wth Family and Friends this morning

5:48am I saw my late 20ish son about 3 blocks from our office as I was
heading to the park.  It was on the corner of one of the streets where
he and others sell my daughters for sex.  He wouldn't meet my eye.
But when I had passed him, I looked back, caught his eye, and said
"Merry Christmas."  He seemed a bit stunned.

5:52am it was another 3 of my sons, just a little younger, a block over.  My guess is
they too had just finished selling or wiping themselves with my daughters. 
They took no notice of me, an old, weird white guy, till I shot them a
loud and cheerful, "Morning!"  They fell silent.  They seemed confused.  On this
still, quiet morning I heard nothing from their group for the several
more minutes we remained within earshot of each other.  The seemed to
be thinking about something.

5:59am as I was just a block from the White House, my brother, my age,
white, was by the McPherson Metro for the warm air.  Looked like he'd been out all night
drinking, in the snow.  Not enough money I'd say to have been in bars. 
Scruffy.  No response to me or my "Merry Christmas?"

6:02am Connie happily received my "Merry Christmas!"  I asked her to stay
by the vigil for a moment, and crossed the street to my 2 sons and a brother
in the Secret Service.  Two I didn't recognize, and one I saw upon getting
close was my brother Kevin.  Oh my goodness, does he ADORE his two
young children.  It was just daybreak, and here he was on Duty, as they
were waking up looking for Santa.  All 3 were surprised and happy with
my "Merry Christmas" handshake.

6:20am or so my sister, the one with the coke bottle glasses and missing
front tooth walked by.  Big warm smile - "Looks like another foot of
snow mid day, you be careful" she wished me.  I don't know where in
DC she sleeps, on the streets.  "Merry Christmas" I said.  "Merry Christmas"
she said.

6:30am this enormously talented, intelligent, handsome, single brother came down from
the office, furious at me for not reducing myself to being his alarm clock -
blaming me for his failure in his opportunity to be here at 6am when
Connie and I change shifts so Connie wouldn't have to walk the 10
blocks in the ice, with her bad foot.

It is awesome with Family and Friends this morning.

Love you.

Please friends, let me tell you the gift brother L gave me today.

Yes, there is the magnificent Christmas display of greens, berries,
red weeping willow (?) that Leon gave me, and I'm sharing with
our sister Connie; and that she is thrilled with.

But not that.

You know how much I Love Barack, don't you? My Love for him is
right up there with my Love for Jesus, because he is
such a Hope for us all. I would gladly give my life to protect his
Work. I spend every waking second attempting to
work at his side on our shared quest to Save Humanity from so
much needless Suffering. We all should. We all must.

I've only known, personally, one other Leader that was of
his caliber of transformative leadership. Who? Start Loving.
I wish I had known millions of such Leaders, and yearn to spark
millions. I LIVE to spark millions!

But having totally wasted my youth, totally not applying myself
I did not reach the caliber and breadth of global expertise that
let me ply my Leadership abilities as Barack is so brilliantly on the
global scale. My point? Oh my goodness, do I "get" Barack.
He IS the greatest Leader in the history of the world, and I Love
him, and I want him to have every ounce of support I can give
him in his Sacred work for our Family.

My friend, my Brother L gave me a gift today -

"If you write President Obama a letter I am quite sure I can get it
hand delivered to him."

Please, imagine my Joy at this moment.

I sooooo want Barack to know that he has my full support, were
it to cost me my life.

I sooooo want Barack to understand CONSCIOUSLY what may be
his UNCONSCIOUS, and therefore fragile CORE COMPETENCE -

HE REFUSES TO BE ANYTHING BUT A "BROTHER" TO HIS
6.8 BILLION SIBLINGS, CHILDREN AND FOLKS.

Pray for me.

Your Loving brother,

My beloved friends -

Late December has become an extraordinary season for me these last 5-10 years.

I'm free now of all the distractions.

I'm free now of the perversions in which I'd been steeped, addicted to for so many
decades - that this is a season of "stuff," rituals, parties, songs, family (and therefore "NOT-family,")
dogma, ceremonies, symbolism, physical miracles, "magic," sex, banquets, treats ....

No. 

Finally, this is the season when I come the closest to our beloved
brother Christ (Spirit of, Being of Universal Love) Jesus.  Our Father willing, I'll spend many hours
this next week  or so reading and pondering deeply the words of Our Brother, over, and
over, and over - basking in the Radiance, Wisdom, Truth of his Universal Love for us, you, me, all
of our Sisters and Brothers, born and who in the future are born. Basking in the Truth, Love, Life,
Peace and Joy of Him.

I'll be with Our Brother Jesus who Loves us all more than anyone ever has, but as
we all can learn to do, as we MUST QUICKLY re-learn to do - which is what Jesus died to give us;
which is the ENTIRETY of what He died to give us - HEAVEN IN THIS LIFE, INDIVIDUALLY,
and if enough of us get it right soon enough - HEAVEN COLLECTIVELY, Saving Civilization - Literally.
Nothing less. Nothing more.  Nothing else.  Simply Heaven on Earth is what Jesus was Dying to give us.
I Start am the "son" of Edward.  SO IS MY BROTHER EDGAR.  "Son" is NOT an EXCLUSIVE term!
"Christ," along with terms like "Marine" are designations of Character and Competence; but
non-exclusive - begging to be earned, achieved by those dying to Serve.

"Love as I have Loved," he said.  [What, He gave us a direction that He knew we were not capable of?  Rubbish.]

"If you Love me, you will do greater works than these," He said.  [What, He was kidding?]

We are all to become, to return to being the Christs we were born as - Beings of Universal Love.
Christ Jesus died to make us Christ Start, Christ Leon, Christ Diane... BY WHATEVER NAME,
OR BY NO NAME AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Beings of Universal Love - as you can be, as some of
you are, as all of us can fully become.  Our Achievement? Our Glory?  Of course not.  Our DUTY.
Our Joy.  Universal Love's GLORY. Our global Family's only Hope.  Humanity's Only Hope.

"The Kingdom of God (Good - Universal Love) is within you.  BE like a Child [before lust, hate, division,
superiority, exploitation, greed, not-family...] and enter in."

Loving you all,

Start

Start L was all but thrown ouit of the Catholic Store in DC today

There is a very large "Catholic" store in DC about 4 blocks from
the White House.  I wanted to get several cards to mark
Jesus birthday and went in this afternoon, and a gift for Connie. 
As I entered this shop, probably 10 customers were in the store. 
It was quiet, "pious," as you can imagine. 

An agitated late 20ish store clerk went bustling from his counter
at my left, in front of me, hurriedly to a man who also was walking
in, behind me at my right.  "YOU, YOU can't be in here!  Out!
OUT!"  I glanced at this man, roughly my age, bundled in one of
those emergency shelter blankets, scruffy, obviously a street
person.  "And you call this a 'Catholic Shop?'" I asked the clerk
firmly, but not unkindly or disrespectfully.  He responded not
inappropriately, and a bit contritely, "He vandalizes things when
he comes in the store."  "Well, I can understand that you can't
have that, but he should be treated with the respect due EVERY
human none the less."

"Are you OK," condescendingly, smarmily came the question from
an early 30ish, very handsome, oily black haired, Wall Street banker
suited guy I immediately judged to be the store manger / corporate
manger.  I stood looking somewhat blankly at his insincerity, that he
might see it as well; giving him the chance to reconsider his dirty
approach and profoundly Anti-Christlike attitudes and prejudices.
"Are you OK?" came the question again; and he weakly extended
his hand for a handshake.  As I took his totally tepid handshake
I said, "Yes, I am OK.  But I don't think you are really concerned
whether I am OK."  It was obvious that he immediately judged
that this guy in a US Flag hat and scarf, camouflage coat, plastic
bags and saddles on feet was yet another "bum" psycho trash
to be thrown out of his Catholic Shop. 

He slithered away.  For a moment I returned my eyes to the rack
of cards with Jesus on them, and then thought to glance at him
as he walked toward his office.  He was in full sneer at an associate
indicating sooooooooo unmistakable,  "Can you believe that
wierdo trash joke I just spoke to?" 

I had caught his eye again by glancing his way.
"Are you associated with what here calls itself a 'Catholic Shop?'" 
I asked across the store, respectfully.  "Yes," he replied.

Having given him this last chance to see his Evil, I went and bought
my cards at Barnes and Nobel. 

When at a long BN cahier's isle it was my turn, from about
4 registers down a mid 20's, very attractive clerk sang out
"May I help you sir!" looking squarely at me with a smile that may
eclipse fossil fuel as a risk for melting  the glaciers.  And every other
clerk was as nice and respectful, kind, genuine and WARM!!!

God save us from the Christians, and ESPECIALLY the God Damn
Pedophile Papists Perverts.

There is far less "room at the Inn" today than in Jesus day.

Your brother,

Start

ps:  As I left BN I thanked them for their kindness and gave them
a 20 second version of the Catholic Store story loud enough
for the 20 folks around the hear.  Two days before Christmas.

"Living is Loving. Death is not." SL

"Living is Loving.  Death is not."  SL

Friends, something exquisite just happened to me. Start

Hi.

About a month ago in the Park I was on post and a woman with a few
grandchildren approached.  We spoke for a while, and sadly I don't
remember the particulars - but my focus is always the same -
the Vigil, Thomas founding it, it continuing with Connie and now my
help, anti-nuclear, climate protection and repair, Palestine....
that we do this out of Love for our global human family, that Waging
Love with greater ferocity, and greater numbers than the world
has waged death is our entire hope; that there is no other ....

I could tell she was deeply moved.

At the end, I asked where she was from - Connecticut she said, and
then mentioned that she is the wife of William Sloan Coffin.  If you
don't know, and I did, William was Chaplin at Yale during the Vietnam
era and one of the most eloquent, first, most courageous, outspoken opponents
of that horrible, horrible, horrible war.  A book that Ellen and Thomas
connected me with that I've excerpted here was my exposure to his
sublime Soul and writings - his essay is excerpted here:
Militant Non-Violence, William Sloane Coffin

I said that reading more of his work was high on
my list.
  I mentioned that I'd searched for more of
his work at the DC Libraries, but they had none.
  She said she would
like to send me one of his books.  We spoke a few more words and then
she left (forgetting to get my address.)  I let it go.

10 minutes later she was back - "I forgot to get your address."

Last week a copy of William's "Credo" arrived.  Only just now did I
have a moment to begin leafing through.  The first chapter is
entitled "Faith, Hope, Love."  On the first page of this chapter she
had written a note:  "*  THIS IS FOR YOU!"  Here is what she
had marked, of William's writings (and now I weep):

"Socrates had it wrong: it is not the unexamined but finally the uncommitted life
that is not worth living.  Descartes too was mistaken; "Cogito ergo sum" - "I think
therefore I am"?  Nonsense.  "Amo ergo sum" - "I love therefore I am."  Or. as with
unconscious eloquence St. Paul wrote, "Now abide faith, hope, love, these three;
and the greatest of these is love."  I believe that.  I believe it is better not to live
than not to love."       William Sloan Coffin, by way of his wife Randy.

Your brother,

Start Loving

"Church:" The nail that kills Jesus, again, and again....

"Church:" The nail that kills Jesus, again, and again....

Imagine what would happen to the Marines if EXACTLY as the
"Church" was perverted to mean not PEOPLE of a specific
Character, Commitment, Competence, but mere buildings and property...
imagine the Marines were convinced of the same - that Camp Lejeune
IS the Marines.  That a Marine is therefore SIMPLY someone who
"attends" and "pays dues" at Camp Lejeune.  This would be
the killing of the military!!!!

This is EXACTLY what the Christ killers pulled off 1800 years ago,
and every day since.  THESE are the Christ-killers:

"Church" is the Chirst-killer as defined this way.

"Christian" is the Christ-killer defined this way.

And these may be in the final stages of killing
all of Humanity.
 

It may be too late to Save us.

"Those who have eyes must see.
Those who have ears must hear."

We need to hurry.

NPR this morning had an hour long segment on robotics - that this is
the age of their proliferation.  It was excruciating to listen to.  Oh yes,
at a younger age for me I'd have been enamored.

Why now sickened, horrified?!  OMG.  #2.  Although Military was never
mentioned, Military OF COURSE will be the initial, primary, dominant use.
BUT, #1 - THE ROBOTS ARE OF, BY AND FOR THE RICH!!!  DUH!!!  US!!!!!!!!!!

"Start, you conspiratorial moron!  Don't you know that they will do things
like help MD's SAVE CHILDRENS LIVES!?!???!?!?"

THIS IS WHERE I GET REALLY, REALLY, REALLY SICK TO MY STOMACH.  THIS IS WHERE I
REALIZE THAT "NUCLEAR FAMILY," "MY" FAMILY, "MY" TOWN, "MY" SCHOOL,
"MY" COMPANY, "MY" COUNTRY, "MY" CHURCH... ARE OUR DEATH.

1.  HOW MANY OF THE 4 BILLION FOLKS EXISTING ON $4 PER DAY WILL THESE
ROBOTS HELP?
2.  HOW MANY OF THEIR CHILDREN WILL THEY SAVE? HOW MANY OF THE 28 MILLION
CHILDREN THAT DIE EVERY YEAR WILL THEY HELP?
3.  HOW MANY WOULD WE LIFT FROM POVERTY, SAVE, IF THE BILLIONS BEING
SPENT ON ROBOTICS, IF THE 10,000'S OF THE WORLD'S BEST MINDS WERE
NOT DISTRACTED BY ROBOTS FOR THE RICH, BUT ELIMINATING POVERTY?????

All given license by  "MY" family, "MY" group....  IF IT WERE OUR FAMILY,
INCLUDING THE 4B IN POVERTY, WE COULDN'T DO THIS!!!!!!!!  OF COURSE
WE'D DEVOTE OURSELVES TO THE POOREST OF OUR FAMILY, THE
4 BILLION!!!!


AND AS LONG AS "NUCLEAR FAMILY" EXISTS, WE NEVER WILL. AND WE WILL
THINK THAT WE DO GOOD, "GOD'S WILL" IN THIS.  I DID.

Deeply Lonely much of my life, Fully Alone now, and no longer Lonely!!! :-)

Yes Nancy, SC, K, D, Ellen... are in my life - Friends as I've never had before.

But physically I am extremely alone.

But I AM NEVER LONELY. Why?  Because I AM WITH ALL of my 6.8 billion
sisters and brothers, ESPECIALLY those most suffering, EVERY WAKING
MOMENT.

I am describing how my life felt, and feels.  Astonishing. WONDERFUL.

Universal Love is, well, er, um - HEAVEN.

That it be unrequited is quite irrelevant.

Death by either means: Right shoots to death. Left talks to death.

In US "Freedom" means Freedom from Responsibility, Humanity, Brotherood...

Freedom from ...decency, consideration, accountability, restraint....

Freedom to ... pollute, steal resources, neglect the poor, hoard
and squander resources on ourselves, deny the consequences of
our irresponsibility....

Freedom to do whatever pleases us regardless of the impact
on the poor, the needy around the country, around the world.

Is this not the Truth?  Really?  REALLY?

Hey, you might despise this, and me for it.

I awoke bolt awake an hour early this morning.

The quote - "I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians,
they are so unlike your Christ."  Gandhi.  has been playing
through my head for days recently.

Our Father, I'm sure awoke me this morning.  Start, I want
you to document the Religion, the Church you've been living
these recent years - My Church, My Religion, that others
might too be Saved.

I've just begun:  http://thechristlikechurch.blogspot.com/
Less than .1% of the work done.  I don't know how fast
Our Father will have me scribe this, and I don't know if and
when He will have others join in the Work.  My guess is that
He will have me be in charge of the work, 1st Shepherd, but
I yearn for Him to bring others to the work.

I'm so sorry if I'm upset you.

Love you.

to not do Our Father's will,
to not stand with Our Father,
to not be Our Father's Love incarnate,
to not serve the most suffering of His/Our Family?
