Hmmmm, I think Hillsong church's direction, or at least their youth group's direction, is beginning to shift away from money... Check out these lyrics from one of their latest songs:

Quote:
It is not a human right
To stare not fight
While broken nations dream
Open up our eyes, so blind
That we might find
The Mercy for the need

Singin Hey Now
Fill our hearts with your compassion
Hey Now
As we hold to our confession
Yeah

It is not too far a cry
To much to try
To help the least of these
Politics will not decide
If we should rise
And be your hands and feet

Singing Hey Now
Fill our hearts with your compassion
Hey Now
As we hold to our confession

Woah-oh-oh,
God be the solution
Woah-oh-oh
We will be Your hands and be Your feet.
Yeah, yeah

Higher than a circumstance
Your promise stands
Your love for all to see
Higher than protest line and dollar signs
Your love is all we need

Only you can mend the broken heart
And cause the blind to see
Erase complete the sinners past
And set the captives free
Only you can take the widows cry
And cause her heart to sing
Be a father to the fatherless
Our savior and our king
We will be your hands, we will be your feet
We will run this race
On the darkest place, we will be your light
We will be your light
Very different to the usual happy-clappy Hillsong stuff.

That's like the exact polar opposite of how my hair really is. And even when it was long, it never knew the meaning of "parting"...

What's confusing is when you have dreams about interferencers, and you have no idea what they look like IRL.

What about Glen Waverley, home to every Indian and Asian immigrant family? *shudder* I hate the place, yet my life seems to revolve around being near or in it.

I still think this means you're a zombie. And that explains why you can't feel cold

On the basis of this, I am going to assume the song is called Thank God We Invaded Iraq.

Yeah, in the dream I made some comment about it, and you were all "yeah, every so often I just totally change my hair", as if it was as natural as buying a new shirt.

It's called Solution actually... It's half decent. I just like the idea that they're actually going to think about doing something for justice and for those people who actually need help for once.

And speaking of cold and hungry, I'm going to bed before I get even more so.

Seeya!

Maj., tell us when to do U23D.

I must admit, I don't see how it makes me a zombie ...

And right now, I'm sitting here in a t-shirt and trousers. I walked tonight from Bell Street to Albion Street, 25-30 minute walk, and the weather was very fresh and crisp, I loved it. Had my blazer on then; I need it when I go outside.

Yeah, it's just a shame they think warfare is a human right. But, baby steps, I suppose.

Well, we're asking you since you're never available ever, so if we find a time you're available, it's almost certain Ali and I will be!

And I hope both of you don't up and leave now.

Where's Bonnie? Passed out from the drkessn?

Oh come on, you know that by "fight" they mean go out and volunteer to help people. It's the standard Christian rhetoric on how all of life is a battle, etc.

Besides, the second verse is awesome:

It is not too far a cry
To much to try
To help the least of these
Politics will not decide
If we should rise
And be your hands and feet
