Just when I settle back down into my somber self, wrapping my theology around me like a woolen shawl, frowning into the books written by very important people so I can be important too, the Spirit comes like a playful child and interrupts my carefully constructed dignity. Religion is serious business, I say, but She is having none of it. Faith is fun, She proclaims, a way to play if we let it be, a chance to laugh and sing, an invitation to join the team open to every child without their even having to be chosen. So I put the book down and follow Her where She will lead.
