Resisting Advent

At Ream of Paper:

His fists flexed closed as he said, “I don’t want a God you can hold in two hands, one if you’re experienced at holding babies! I don’t want a God covered in afterbirth or crowning out of a young woman. I don’t want a God wrapped up in a blanket covered in meconium. I don’t want a God clutching at a woman’s breast. I want pomp, and God-type things. I want thunder and rain and lightning, well-placed too.”
