Well, those Presbyterians are at it again, and I think it's about time.
Seems Christianity's Big One/Three needs a retitling. Too, I dunno, biblical, I guess.
Well, a couple of their new really good ones are omitted here for lack of risibility, but here are my favorites from what they came up with:
• Sun, Light and Burning Ray
• Compassionate Mother, Beloved Child and Life-giving Womb
• Rainbow of Promise, Ark of Salvation and Dove of Peace
• Overflowing Font, Living Water, Flowing River
• Fire That Consumes, Sword That Divides, and Storm That Melts Mountains
Meh. The Sun God thing, too much of Him gives you skin cancer. "Our Rainbow Who Art (Am, Is) Wherever" makes me want to fetch my Divine Coloring Book. With the recent floods in the northeast, overflow is counterintuitive: Dear Overflow, leave us alone, willya? And here in California, a Storm That Melts Mountains caused a landslide that almost took out my patio deck.
I don't think the Presbs go far enough. What we need here is some market research and narrowcasting to our core focus groups and potential customers:
--Solar, Wind, and Clean-Burning Hydrogen Power (Enviro-God)
--Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Holy Flamingo (Kung-Fu God)
--Owner, Driver, Pit Crew (NASCAR God)
--Apatosaurus, T. Rex and Archaeopteryx (Jurassic God)
--Pop, Snap and Crackle (Breakfast God)
--Tinker to Evers to Chance (Teamwork God)
--Townshend, Daltrey, Entwistle (The Writer, The Song and The One Who Played Bass God)
--Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness (Separation of Church and God God)
--Mother Sheehan, Brother Murtha, and BTW, What's in My Womb is None of Your Damn Business Anyway (Kos God)
A fruitful vein. One Presbyter said you might as well call 'em Huey, Dewey and Louie, but I think he isn't quite down with the Spirit of the thing. The Deity Formerly Known as The Triune God has got to get into the 21st century.
I bet y'all have a topper, but in the meantime, for now I'll think of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost as:
Rock, Paper, Scissors. Not only a Good God, but a great game.
