For those of you who don't know me I'm Che' Lovell and I run the EcoChurch and ChurchOftheWorld Ministries. We have a lot of fun in our ministries because we eat vegan pizza and drink a lot of environmentally friendly water and think up stuff we can do to support this crazy world where we all live. Because you know there's just this one world and we all have to share it! And I don't just mean us crazy, bare-skinned, two-legged primates, but I mean all those little crawly things that you step on when your not paying attention and big elephants and fish and bats and turtles and the electric eel and termites and squid and dolphins. A lot of people think that dolphins are actually smarter than people and have psychic powers. Oh Yah! And body thetans too. We're all part of a big world community.
But you'll notice that my ministries EcoChurch and ChurchOftheWorld both have that funny word church in them. Sometimes republicans come by SOV2 and say "Hey what's with this faith community stuff" and "why are you afraid of using the word church?" and things like that. And after I yell at them for killing people all over the world with their stupid wars and stealing and stuff I usually tell them this:
You know church is something you do. Like "I'm church to you" or "let's be church together." its not about some white guy in Rome with a funny hat. That's the way you should understand it when I say Ecochurch I mean let's be church to the ecosystem. And its an action verb thing like EcoChurch = Protest against chicken killers or ChurchOftheWorld = Go tell republicans there stupid. That kind of thing.
Another question republicans often ask me is then what is a "faith community" And after I yell at them and tell them to stop opressing womyn by limitting choice and to get behind China's awesome One Child policy I usually say to them something like this.
A faith community is like all these people who get together and experience the lifeforce in the god-spirit through corporate meditation and celebrate in an open free-flowing environment not held down by the heavy chains of the past to soar upward being impelled by the dynamics of primacy of self-actuated conscience to reach a higher pinacle of consciousness that grows into a revelation of the inner connection that connects and unifies each of us through our diversity into the one great mystery that is EarthMother.
Anyway last night at the debate you could really feel the faith community stand up together. It was great! I'm sure that Father Tim and Maryann are extra-proud of us today as we come together to all be church together and stuff. And so let's get started and bring up the muffins that the twins made for us and let's all let our positive energy flow and stuff.
Oh YAH! and stick around afterwards because I brought my Collector's edition of Purple Rain on DVD and we're going to be showing that.
