Looking For God

The Old Prophet went up into the mountains in search of God, and there he had a great Realisation.

And when he returned again to the tents of his people, they gathered round him and said, “Tell us, O Prophet, what manner of creature is this God?”

And he looked at them for a long moment, deep in thought.

And finally he said, slowly and unblinkingly, “God is a verb.”

And behold, the people bowed down and worshipped dictionaries.

  1. I’ve never read The Book of Guff but I can honestly say it sounds like that book has a better eye on God than any religion’s bible I have known.
