Three Bucks Worth of God

I would like to buy $3.00 worth of God, please. Not enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep, but just enough to equal a cup of warm milk or a snooze in the sunshine. I don’t want enough of Him to make me love a black man or pick beets with a migrant. I want ecstasy, not transformation; I want the warmth of the womb, not a new birth. I want a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack. I would like to buy $3.00 worth of God, please.

Alas, Cornerstone the print mag is no more. We do a website, though I'd say there is more action on this and other related blogs than the mag site itself. It often serves as a central location to point folk to other sites done by various cstone-related folks.
