I can’t stand your religious meetings. I’m fed up with your conferences and conventions. I want nothing to do with your religion projects, your pretentious slogans and goals. I’m sick of your fund-raising schemes, your public relations and image making. I’ve had all I can take of your noisy ego-music. When was the last time you sang to me?
Do you know what I want? I want justice—oceans of it. I want fairness—rivers of it. That’s what I want. That’s all I want.
– Amos 5: 21-24 (MSG)

Brian McLaren pasted today on his Facebook wall this quote from Eugene Peterson’s paraphrased Bible Version called The Message (one of my favourites). I thought you might enjoy it too. Thanks, Brian!
