Play with the everyday hells so as to stretch yourself into heaven. . . . Stop being so serious about God. Laugh your prayer in order to find the deeper mysteries of God's humor. Cry over the beauty of joy and weep when you are blessed. Become a contrary, a Jesus coyote, a trickster saint, an outstretched cross that juxtaposes endless sacred contraries.
