WE ARE CHURCH!!!

Jesus, a great prophet, recommended that we go out and "Spread the Good News" and that's what I'm doing!

I just got back from my ordination...uh...er....I mean "retreat" on the Danube river, and while there, we came across the coolest thing for our ministry!



Altho' SOV2 is a rockin' place, we shouldn't limit our great prophetic voice to one small corner of the Universe. To do so is to limit what the god-spirit wants to do with us. We are charged with going out among the people, being Eucharist with them, but how can we do that when we are imitating that dead heirarchical and patriarchial organization, the Roman Catholic church, in plotting out a piece of Mother Earth?

So I have met with Dym Tim, and we're going to purchase a new way to bring SOV2 on the road! I'll have informational and brainstorming sessions all month, and next month we'll have listening sessions, so everyone gets a say as to where we might go first.

Our theme this year is "WE ARE CHURCH!" so we're going to require that all of the older students sign up for a mission trip on the new...well....what should we call it?

Any suggestions?

CONTEST!

Dym Tim and Che', will you choose the best names and the proper award for whoever wins?

Hey Maryann! Or should I say "Dym Maryann?" Anyway, my only thought is "Spiritmobile" - I'm sure that Ché and our many creative faith communicants will be able to come up with some super suggestions.

Dym Tim, I thing my term should be Mym Maryanne, because I can't be a Dym.

Anyway, thanks for your support. I never could have done this without you and Womenpriests, Call to Action, and Dignity.

Nah, "spiritmobile" is way to close to the "popemobile."

You need something like the "fly-spirit-ride" That title would be dope and psychadelic!

Of course along that line, you could have the "Jesus-Christ-Superstar-good-time-vibe-spirit-car"

I want Trippin' With Peoples!

But if somebody comes up with an even more awesome name I will give them one of the mirror hats for the environment. By the way! We still have 49,987 hats left! So if you don't win than you can buy one for ten dollars.

I vote for "SOV Cruiser", or maybe just call it an "SOV", you know... like SUV, but different?

Well, for government vehicles, we number them and put many electronic devices in them to readily identify them--although sometimes the radio gets kinda fuzzy with the interference.
How about this for an idea:
SOV2-3290686712
