When my dad wrote prayers for church, they were full of "thees" and "thous" and he stuck "st" and "th" at the end of vowels, as if he thought God only understood Elizabethan English. I think it was his way of keeping God at a respectful distance. I don't know that this is the message of Matthew 4 at all when Matthew tells us of the call of the first four disciples. It looks to me as if God seeks us out way back in the cheap seats, where we actually live.

Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Kentucky, was built on the casting floor of a 19th Century iron blast furnace. We use "The Casting Floor" as an image for the power of the Spirit to form us. Visit us at http://communitypresbyterian.org.
