Church Mess-a-phor

Thanks to bud Cathy Weigand for this video.  She sent it to me with the lyrics which I print below.  For me it is a brilliant metaphor for what a diverse, connectional system really looks like — discordant, messy, loud, kinetic, dynamic, frenetic, and always connected — each piece integral to the whole.  We use the apostle Paul’s image of the human body and the interplay of various parts and functions.  Here is a fun image of what this passage might look like if written by Rube Goldberg (look it up).  (Note: don’t be disconcerted by the opening scene — it isn’t blood, it’s red paint!)

You know you can’t keep lettin’ it get you down
And you can’t keep draggin’ that dead weight around.
If there ain’t all that much to lug around,
Better run like hell when you hit the ground.

When the morning comes.
When the morning comes.

You can’t stop these kids from dancin’.
Why would you want to?
Especially when you’re already gettin’ yours.
‘Cause if your mind don’t move and your knees don’t bend,
well don’t go blamin’ the kids again.

When the morning comes.
When the morning comes.

Let it go, this too shall pass.
Let it go, this too shall pass.

Let it go, this too shall pass.
(You know you can’t keep lettin’ it get you down. No, you can’t keep lettin’ it get you down.)

Let it go, this too shall pass.
(You know you can’t keep lettin’ it get you down. No, you can’t keep lettin’ it get you down.)
Hey!
Let it go, this too shall pass.
(You know you can’t keep lettin’ it get you down. No, you can’t keep lettin’ it get you down.)
