A song I heard … God is a DJ

I heard this song recently and I had to look up the words as I found it to be unique and interesting for our time.  I don’t know anything about the group, except that the name contradicts the message they send in their music and I found that to be quite interesting.  The group’s name is “Faithless”.

This is my church
This is where I heal my hurts
It’s a natural grace
Of watching young life shape
It’s in minor keys
Solutions and remedies
Enemies becoming friends
When bitterness ends
This is my church
This is my church
This is where I heal my hurts
It’s in the world I become
Contained in the hum
Between voice and drum
It’s in the change
The poetic justice of cause and effect
Respect, love, compassion
This is my church
This is where I heal my hurts
For tonight
God is a DJ
God is a DJ
This is my church

Welcome to my church in La Porte, Texas!

The Texas FlagYes, I am a Texan.  And proud.  And this is my church – the First United Methodist.  I have attended this church for many years, as I started with my parents, then continued on my own.  I like my church because the people are friendly and truly concerned with the issues and problems that other members face in day-to-day life.  It is like having a safety-net around me and my family at all times.

When I am out of town and can’t attend church, I know that I will always be missed.  It never fails that someone will comment to me that they “missed” me the previous week and wondered if everything was ok.

If you are traveling through our area, remember that you are always welcome.  People will greet you as if they have known you all their lives.  THAT is what makes our church special.

Welcome to my church!
