God calling.

Oh, Hello God and how are you today?

Let's dispense with the small talk and get down to business, shall we.

Uh, Okay. Yes, Sir, You are the Boss.

Am I? Am I really?

Y e e e ss

Then why do you fail to show up to our corporate meetings?

What?

silence

uhhhmmnnn, no excuses.

How do you imagine you are going to find out what's going on when you fail to show up?

I have things to show and tell, and you can't even show up! Do you not realize the magnitude of this operation we're running?

We?

Did I not give you dominion?

silence

Did I not command you to subdue the earth?

silence

How will you take dominion and subdue the earth if you cannot even show up? if you will not even subdue the flesh you're dwelling in? The purpose of these meetings are for you to become so familiar with the blueprints you know what's next. How do you imagine you can subdue the earth, take dominion and recover what was forfeited when you let every little distraction keep you from corporate meetings?

I have things to unveil!

Furthermore, I miss you. I miss your companionship. I miss your affection. I miss your adoration. I miss your voice praising me for those things I have already shown you. Do you imagine that's all there is? I have things to unveil to you you have no idea of.

But I can't if you fail to show up and be attentive...

Your loss.

Interesting method!
It was hard to know who was speaking without the quote marks. It was assumed that each new paragraph was a new speaker. I like to write with only dialogue too.
Good job...keep writing

A very eye opening article. I liked how it was written from a boss to employee perspective. It got the point across well in my opinion. Good job!

While the basic thoughts of this dialogue are true, I felt almost like it emphasized all that the Christian should be doing without referencing the way God says He will help you do His work. It seemed like there was nowhere to go at the end. The boss didn't seem very open to reconciliation to me. But it was an interesting and unique take on Christian service.

As I read your article, it reminded me of Job's encounter with God. Thanks for reminding me of God's desire for relationship with the created.
