In the beginning, God created a universe so scary, stars must die screaming to make enough heavy elements to make just one small world.

And a world so scary, making the ingredients of life requires the kind of earthquakes and volcanoes that can destroy it.

And a bunch of people that just can't stop doing bad stuff, no matter how hard they try to do good stuff.

So maybe there's a kind of circularity there. Maybe it's the kind of universe where God has to take on those fragile elements, and be born into that scary world, and die, to know what it's like to live in the universe he made.

Hang onto the myrrh, Baby Jesus.
