Lord, Send a Revival (And Let It Begin With Me)

My calendar at work has a pink sticky note that goes on the current date. And there’s a big, red circle around Feb. 6th. I’ve been watching the pink sticky note march closer and closer to Ash Wednesday with…

Well, honestly, great apathy bordering on loathing.

God is an annoying bastard at times, though. God can give you an earworm worse than any 1980s pop song, that’ll stick in your head for days and months and even years.

I’ve got two. The first one is from JN1034 (God be good to him) and is the title of the famous post, Do the Tradition, Be the Church.

The second one is the title of this post, and that song has been running through my head, non-stop, for THREE WEEKS!


*ahem* Where was I? Oh, yes. Lent. Two weeks. Apathy bordering on loathing. My soul is beaten down within me, and all around the Internet all I see are wolves out to rend me. There is little hope out there amongst Christians, Lord, and that’s even with Christmas just past and Easter peeking over the next horizon.

Lord, we need us a revival. So, let’s have one. How’s Tuesday, February 5th, 2008 sound to you? 

“Now wait a minute, Mary Sue,” some of y’all are saying. “I’m MOTR and have never no never been to a revival in my entire life. What in the name of all that’s good and wacky are you talking about?”

Let’s turn to the Wikipedia: A revival meeting is a series of Christian religious services held in order to inspire active members of a religious body.

Oooh, a nice, loosey-goosey definition with a lot of wiggle room. I like this definition. Let’s go with this definition. You got a word laid on your heart that can inspire your fellow Christians? You write it up, pumpkin, and you post it around the 5th. And you send me a link. You don’t have a word? You’re wondering why I keep talking about words? Then you tell us about how God has moved in your life. You tell us what  your favorite Bible verse is, and why. You testify, bretheren and sistren.

We’re on the Internet, though. Let’s see what we can do about getting some mp3 recordings of sermons (I’m looking at all you preacher-types, and all you). Heck, let’s go crazy, let’s get us some VIDEOS. Even my little point and shoot digicam takes scratchy, yucky video, but it’s video, and it can go on the YouTube.

So, there’s the groundwork for our Revival.

Can I get an Amen?
