6/22/14 --First annual St.Kathleen Bergin Green Day: pissing against the wall, banshee screaming, singing with the damned, elevator subversion, Matt 19:-20:16 and capuchin monkeys

Kathleen Bergin Green came all the way from the Bronx to be with us today...or something like that.
It was an honor to hear about herLaundromat Love ministry..and pray over her  (above)..

at third day fresno we love to pray for a different church every week, that God would bless them more than us (Philippians 2:1-11).
This week, check out @Christian Temple here in Fresno, and the wonderful pastor, Eli Loera. They are in a challenged part of town, and I'm guessing they get all kinds of trash and hate mail etc in this prayer request box out in front of the building..but it's worth it to get the prayer resquests!

Steven Anderson and Johnny Cash.  We liked Cash the best
Opening comments here: "Johnny Cash doesn't sing to the damned, he sings with the damned, and sometimes you feel he might prefer their company" -Bono,on the liner notes of Cash's three album collection Love God Murder

BTW, The awesome Bible scholar  Scot McKnight posts on the

"pisseth against the wall” 

passages, and points us to the interpretation  that"the natural equivalent is 'S.O.B.'”


But many who are first will be last, 
                     and many who are last will be first.

For the kingdom of heaven is like:  a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire men to work in his vineyard.
He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and sent them into his vineyard.
"About the third hour he went out and saw others standing last in the marketplace doing nothing.
He told them, 'You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.'
So they went. "He went out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour and did the same thing. About the eleventh hour he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, 'Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?  'Because no one has hired us,' they answered.   "He said to them, 'You also go and work in my vineyard.' "When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, 'Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.' "The workers who were hired (last), about the eleventh hour came and each received a denarius. So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. 'These men who were hired last worked only one hour,' they said, 'and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.' "But he answered one of them, 'Friend, I am not being unfair to you. Didn't you agree to work for a denarius? Take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don't I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I AM  generous?' 

            So the last will be first,
                               and the first will be last.
