One of us

google.images.com

If God had a name what would it be?
And would you call it to His face?
If you were faced with Him in all His glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?

And yeah, yeah God is great
Yeah, yeah God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home

If God had a face what would it look like?
And would you want to see?
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like Heaven and in Jesus and the Saints
And all the Prophets?

And yeah, yeah God is great
Yeah, yeah God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home

Tryin’ to make His way home
Back up to Heaven all alone
Nobody callin’ on the phone
‘Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

Yeah, yeah God is great
Yeah, yeah God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home

Just tryin’ to make His way home
Like a Holy rolling stone
Back up to Heaven all alone
Just tryin’ to make His way home

Nobody callin’ on the phone
‘Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

-sung by Joan Osborne

  1. Yes! One of us! Watching some of the coverage makes me realize how random these events are, and how no one is safe in their path. Thank you for the round up of resources for giving assistance! A good Sunday’s work! ~ Sheila

  2. What a thoughtful post – as usual. I’m sure all are appreciative of your links for aid. Thanks MJ.

  3. Thinking of all those affected. We just can’t imagine what they’re all dealing with. I agere with Renee, thoughful post…

  5. Very cool MJ. Very cool.
    ~d.

  6. You’ve served me twice today…here and on my blog. Thank you for speaking up and sharing what’s in your heart.

  7. Went to church this morning. The minister spoke about “Shadows of Hopelessness”. Our job is to Arise out of it …no, it’s not that simple but to avoid repeating the sermon…ditto on sheila…”A good Sunday’s work, MJ.”

    • I couldn’t agree more …. the sky has a way of reminding us just how small we all really are and to the folks impacted, I think, “There but for the grace of God go I.”

      MJ

  8. Lots of folks might not have heard of Architects for Humanity, but Sara is friends with the organization’s founder, and it’s an amazing non-profit/NGO.

    Thanks so much, MJ!

    Hugs,
    Kathy

    • How cool is it that your Sara is friend’s with that organization’s founder? The same org. I had not heard of before yesterday? Serendipity much?
