Hello, Dolly — an Image of God?

Carol Channing as Dolly in "Hello Dolly"

In a class after church we were discussing You, God. In my group most people thought You were bound by the natural laws that You have created.

How SAD that would be!

I prefer thinking of you as a “Hello Dolly” sort of Being!

My very favorite line in Hello Dolly is when Dolly hands out her card and says: I meddle!  She then launches into a song about how she pulls a little here and pushes a little there . . . Ah! What a wonderful JOY FILLED musical!  There should be MORE Dollies in this world.

In my experience, You LOVE to interact. Love to be ASKED.  Long to be allowed in — to comfort and to rearrange our hearts – and our bodies too.

As for breaking Your own laws — well just my passing awareness of quantum physics makes me realize things work very differently when they are really small. Maybe Your “Laws” are designed for Your Participation? Afterall, when I had to write a Fining Policy for the UH Libraries at Manoa, I made sure I gave myself the power to “adjust” the rules.  Now, God, would YOU do LESS?

When I pray with friends — it feels as if we are sitting together — in YOUR HEART.  Something happens inside me.  Something good.  Even if I never know what it is or how it works. Please, God.  Come and Meddle in my life!

Story teller,

Posted in processing on deeper levels, sacred space, the essential nature of hope, the JOY of praying together, Trusting God
