When Jesus, Drugs, and Lawrence Welk Collide

What do these people think they’re singing about? (And, sadly, it’s clear that the gentleman introducing the singers is flat-out stoned. And as the song goes on, is the woman bouncing up and down just a tad … too rhythmically? No, you’re right. Probably not. Of course not. Never mind.)

More and more I'm communicating with my readers through my free (and ad-free) email newsletter, which is just a simple, direct and personal email from me that I send out every three weeks or so. If you would like to receive this email in your inbox, subscribe to it on my website, or by using the subscription box about halfway down the column on the right. I wouldn't think of using your email address for anything but my e-newsletter (to which you can always unsubscribe with the click of a button). Thanks, and looking forward to communicating with you in this more intimate way.

    I remember that song. As a child it was just a catchy gospel song; as a teen I wondered what it really meant. Still do.

    Thanks a lot, John. Now the song will be stuck in my head all day.

    Very Welky. Hey, does anyone remember when Lawrence Welk singer Kathie Sullivan wenton ABC's FRIDAYS as Andy Kaufman's fiancee and that she had led him to faith in Christ?
