This post comes with a warning – perhaps I’m being harsh! But in my continued thoughts on Psalm 100 last week a parody – or reality? – came into being…
“Mumble with a faint glow of smugness about the Lord, all you who could be bothered to attend tonight.
Give a little to God, grudgingly; sing half-heartedly.
Rehearse the same old, same old, then behave as if you’re on your own.
Come into his presence and expect congratulations for making the effort;
Take what you can and then get out.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations…”
