Homily, Sunday, August 26

Hey! Do you feel it? I do. What is it that we feel? That's right - it's a sense of oppression. And why do we feel it? I've got two little words for you: Second Reading. Wow! Where did that come from? All of a sudden, we're all about discipline. Now, before we go around thinking that we've suddenly become a bunch of nazis, I'd like you to look around the liturgical interior and tell me what you see. That's right. You see people. People being church. So in other words, ignore the second reading - that was written for different peoples in different times. This is a new age, and just like after Jesus we didn't have to do all that Jewish stuff any more, like mutilating penises and stuff, now in this new age, alot of that displine and law and stuff just doesn't cut it. This is an age where faithwalks and love offerings will get us where we're going. Not to some crazy heaven place, but to real church, real eucharist. The kind of eucharist that you find when you feed a starving person, or when you tell a suffering homosexual that they're not doing anything wrong. It's like Marty says - we've got to SING a new church into being - we've got to JOIN in the song. Are you in the song? Are you singing church?

Hey Father Tim!

There were these people who were in the church this morning and I knew there was something wrong because they were wearing suits except for the womyn-person who had a napkin or something on her head and I thought they maybe were like those Mennanites or soemthing but they didn't have beards or anything (the men I mean).

Anyway, I was watching them the whole mass because they got there early and were looking under the folding chairs for something so I thought maybe they dropped something. I was there early because I was helping clean up from the youth group meeting all the silly string. But maybe they just had the wrong time.

But you know they didn't clap at all during Come to the Feast! And when the mime person was doing his thing, what is his name? Is it Willow or something? I can't remember. Anyway, they all were looking at each other and they actually walked out.

I thought I'd let you know in case something was missing or there was any vandalism or anything.

It's OK Che, I caught up with them after they walked out, because I saw them on my surveillance cameras, and I was asking them questions as to why they were here. They were very disoriented, but they mentioned to me that they had been trying to reach some kind of In-dolt Latin mass that goes on in Knoxville.
No worries! They were just lost.
