The church office and planned disturbance


Our church office is beginning to shape up well.  We’re trying to encourage people to drop in, which reminded me of this line from a song by a favourite band of mine, introduced by the late John Peel, called the Colorblind James Experience.

When I arrive in Memphis I’ll put a sign out on the door
“It’s okay to disturb me, that’s what I came here for”

I love the whole song, especially the start of the last verse:

I’ll ask the lowly sparrow, up in his lofty perch
“Would you please direct me to the local Baptist church?”
I’ll attend the Wednesday meeting and there I’ll speak in tongues
I’ll shout and holler “praise the lord” ”till I nearly burst my lungs
