2008 GA Theme Song


~with apologies to Dionne Warwick~

Can you pray your way to San Jose?
Two years passed since the last GA
That’s when the PUP came out to play
Who will moderate the GA in San Jose
Shoemaker, Teng, Mazza or Reyes-Chow?
GA could bring understanding, brotherhood or
Just another PresbyRow
Newbie commissioners just come and go
But the Stated Clerk stays on the roster
Will it be Tarbell, Jones, Parsons or Koster?
At the end of the week--they’ll vote on the Clerk
And then go home and tell the folks about the days they spent at GA.
Wo oh oh oh
And wonder how they got to San Jose
Wo oh oh oh
Will you pray their way to San Jose?

Very humorous. I head that way Sunday morning. (To San Jose, not towards humorous--at least not usually.)

We were having supper Saturday with two couples in their early thirties. I said that San Jose song just keeps going through my head and then sang the first couple of lines to them. They looked at me with blank stares. They'd never heard it before. Sigh... I'm getting old. :)

PresbyG,

No, I'm not going. The moderator of our presbytery is not one of the commissioners by virtue of office.

But I am blogging for the presbytery from home! In my green pajamas!

I think there should be some contest for the number of times someone makes a "Do you know the way to San Jose" reference. One prize for the most and one for the least ;-) Yours is clearly the most creative yet.
