The Story of God?

In a public bathroom the other day I saw a bible entitled “The Story of God” lying on the sink next to a man washing his hands. “The” Story? How trite. If we take the words of the biblical authors seriously, we believe the Bible recounts pivotal Encounters with G-d. It does not offer the definitive “Story” of G-d, who is, after all, a Being we can only look at sideways. As People of the Book we still realize that this Book we treasure is the Shepherd’s crook – not the Shepherd. The Story of G-d cannot be told. The true name cannot be spoken. Time for a bit of Christian Taoism. hehe.
