some images of G-d are more pleasant, more palatable
and some images are more complete ~
what's the image we hold on to?
checking out after setting the world in motion?
bringing vengeance with a sword?
crying from the margins for justice?
wearing a tweed jacket with divine elbow patches?
leading each of us on our own personal spiritual journey?
with children on his lap?
or do we picture G-d hanging on a cross,
beaten and defeated and dead
thereby claiming victory over death for all time and for all creation?
