"At the tattoo parlor, my friend worked with needle and ink applying a design to the skin on his client's back, as the three of us sat discussing our spiritual desires and ambivalence about religion.

The man's comment prompted me to consider the questions: Am I in some measure complicit in the domestication of Jesus?"
