'Shall we send them another book of rules like the ten commandments?' 'No', the most Holy Trinity decided. 'Instead of a rule book, let us send them a love note to reveal our love for them. Furthermore, let us put into their hands incontrovertible proof that the love note is genuine.'
'Shall we free them from the Romans as we freed them from the Egyptians?' 'No', the most Holy Trinity decided. 'Let us free them from their worst oppressor. Let us pour love into their hearts to drive out the miserable and hideous beast of lovelessness within.'
The God who fashioned us out of the mud with his hands put himself into the hands of the mud for the purpose of revelation. He revealed to us the sweetness of paradise.
