sinners un-anonymous

After a week reflecting on the fact that we're all addicts to our own "drug" of choice, i'm convinced that i want to one day provoke a movement (not another silly church business who's ultimate end is "budgets, bodies, & buildings"). If it needed a name, we'd called it "sinners un-anonymous", where there would be no more religous activity that would continue to promote the silly facades that we are super-spiritual, perfect models of human existence with no moral failures. It would be basically a 12-step program for everyone... where all of us admit our lack of ability to control our addiction to being in control and to pride: the tendency to view, and behave according to the viewpoint, that holds myself at the center of the universe and everyone else (including God) revolving around me.

yep, I'm in... it starts now.

"Hello, my name is Stacey Wisdom and I'm a SIN-AHOLIC... an addict to myself who is out-of-control trying to be IN control."

"God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change... Courage to change the things I can... and Wisdom to know the difference... Living one day at a time... Enjoying one moment at a time... Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace... Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it... Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will... That I may be reasonably happy in this life... And supremely happy with Him in the next. AMEN."

(now THAT would be CHURCH!)
