Make God Great Again

Version 2
Did Moses see a “burning bush” like this in the fall? Was the “voice” he heard the wind or a bird, or his own breathless heartbeat before the beauty?

When God was great, it (before gender pronouns) was the sun, the moon or the wind.  It was the mountain or the river, the tree, the ocean or the sky.  It was the elephant, the lion, the wolf, the eagle, the spider, the turtle or the whale.

When God was great, it was not human, not a person, had no face or voice.

When God was great, there was no church or synagogue, no mosque or temple or “sacred place.”

When God was great, there was no scripture, no book to divide this world, or invent another.

When God was great, no one could say it (he or she) was on their side whispering in their ear and speaking through their mouth.

When God was great, no one disrespected another or killed in The Name.

When God was great, no one even knew the name “God.”

How to make God great again?

Try taking away All Human Attributes–anything that resembles Humanity. . .

and see what’s left.

Now, that

might be called

“God.”

Or. . .we might find we don’t need that name, that image, that voice, any longer?
