I
and
the Father
are
One.
[John 10:30]
*********************
"I feel like a jack-ass,
Lord."

[PATIENT VOICE.]
"Why,
child."

(Dispirited shrug.)
"CUZ."
(Shrug.)
"EVERYBODY'S doin'
so WELL.....and, I'm
just a SCHLUBB."

[PATIENT NODDING.]

"I feel like an IDIOT."

[NOD.]

(Laugh up at the ceiling.)
"Are You AGREEING
WITH ME?"

[CHUCKLE.]

(Dispirited sigh.)
(Gaze off into nowwhere.)
(Long pause.)
"Hey.....LORD?
WHAT WAS
JESUS' VOICE,
like?"

[PATIENT GAZE.]

(Squinting,
thoughtfully.)
"It's just that.....
I've been listening to
this CD, and...."

[SMILE.]
"Yes."
[TENDER VOICE.]
"I know,
My child."

"Yeah.
Well, it's just that
JESUS is talking on it,
and...."

[SMILE!]

"Yeah;
I like it better,
than all that READING:
what with my bad
VISION, and all...."

[NOD.]

(Wave at the ceiling.)
"Not, that I'm KEVTCHING!"

[CHUCKLE.]
"Yes,
child.
Go on."

"Well.....the ACTOR
who's READING the
part of JESUS...
has this real gentle VOICE."

[SMILE.]
"Go on."

(Sassy smile up at the ceiling.)
"I didn't say GENTILE......
I said, GENTLE voice!"

[BURST OF LAUGHTER,
FROM THE RIGHT SIDE
OF THE THRONE.]

"SO?"
(Look up.)
"Was JESUS' voice,
that GENTLE...
or WHAT?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"I PICTURED it...
kind'a STRONGER,
and....HARSHER."
(Thoughtful squint.)
"ESPECIALLY,
after what all He
had to say to those
poor PHARISEES."

[SMILING FROM
THE RIGHT SIDE
OF THE THRONE.]

"WELL?
Am I RIGHT?
WASN'T it....HARSHER?"

[SILENCE.]

"I bet it WAS."

[CHUCKLING.]

"Ya aren't gonna
TELL me....
ARE Ya."

[SMILING.]
"Just continue,
child."

"What,
Lord: bein'a
a SCHLUBB?"

"No.
Listening."
***********************
My sheep
hear
My voice,
and I
know them,
and
they follow
Me.
[John 10:27]
