In those days
there was no
king
in Israel;
every man
did what was
right
in his own
eyes.
[Judges 17:6]
**********************
"Hey, LORD?
I don't know what
to CALL You, ANYMORE!"

[SILENCE.]

(Teasing smile!)
(Yell up at the ceiling fan.)
"WHAT name.....d' YA LIKE?"

[SILENCE.]

(Peer squintedly up at ceiling.)
(Inward grimmace.)
"What: are You still, eh...
MAD at ME?"

[SMALL VOICE.]
"About what,
Mein kinder."

(Squirm.)
(Shrug cluelessly.)
"I DUNNO."
(Shrug.)
(Raise scruffy eyebrows.)
(Look around, cluelessly.)

[LONG SILENCE.]

(Look away.)
(Squirm.)
"I dunno.
(Shrug.)
"YA.. know."

[PATIENT GAZE.]
"No, My child.
[LONG SILENCE.]
What."

(Grimmace.)
(Squirm.)
(Look away.)

[PATIENTLY WAITING.]

(Look around.)
(Frown.)
(Squeeze eyes really hard.)
(Grit teeth, remembering.)
(Grimmace in shame.)
(Long silence.)
"So......eh, ANYWAY.....
what NAME d'Ya LIKE
ta' be CALLED?"

[PATIENT GAZE.]

"'KING' doesn't really
fit my STYLE.......Ya KNOW?"

[WISE ALL-KNOWING NOD.]
"Ah.
I see."

"No, I don't MEAN that!
I'm just from a democratic
COUNTRY and all....."

[ALL-SEEING NOD.]
[CALM VOICE.]
"I know where you're
from, child."

(Glimpse up at ceiling.)
(Still squirming.)
(Clear throat.)
"Well.....yeah.
I know Ya DO.
It's just....eh...."
(Philosophical shrug.)
"'KING' is just a little
too.....too......."

[WISE NOD.]
[CURIOUS VOICE.]
"YES?"

(Squirm.)
(Lost in....eh, thought.)
(Nervous laugh!)
"Well....it's sort'a like
that word 'SIN'!
ECH!"
(Stop smiling.)
(Look away.)
(Squirm.)
"It's, like....a little
too.....too...."

[ALL-SEEING GAZE.]
"WHAT."

(Look away.)
(Shrug.)
"I dunno."
(Squint in thought.)
(High-pitched voice.)
"HEAVY?"

[LONG, CALM NOD.]

(Long silence.)
(Keep looking away.)
(Clear throat, again.)
"Well."
(Shrug.)
"This...this 'KING' stuff..
just doesn't FIT ME!"
(Wave hands dramatically.)
Ya know...........who I am....!"

[ALL-SEEING GAZE.]
[CALM NOD.]
"I understand,
Mein kinder."

(Puzzled squint.)
(High-pitched voice.)
"Ya DO?"
(Clear dry throat.)
(Lower, calmer voice.)
"I mean... Ya do?"

[PATIENT PAUSE.]
[ALL-KNOWING NOD.]
"But,
it fits
Me."
***************************
For to you
is born
this day
in the city
of David
a Savior,
Who is
Christ
the Lord.
[Luke 2:11]
