God is a convenience of thought, but so are you and I. Personification is one of the things we humans specialize in, along with tool use, sexualized boundary creating, and imitative playfulness in music making.
In a way to not see a god is a denial of what we've been building toward for so long here - words crystallized into covenanted meanings - but I understand the desire to break down that altar.
It's not the fact of god that is contentious at heart but how, in what color and shape, that person has been crystallized.
Here I am with Amy Larimer at the Dragon's Egg, playing with personification, tool use, boundary-setting and music-making.
