Like all the man-made products that fit into other man-made products that were not made by the same men or for the same reasons.

I liked how the rubber stopper in the laundry-room washtub was good for corking certain Erlenmeyer flasks and that 5 mg. Ritalins could be stored in the screw-hollows on the handles of umbrellas.The Instructions (pp. 29-30)"

How, I ask, can the world change – how can heaven come to earth – if we stingily protest against God for his grace to others, grace we have freely received ourselves? How can we pray "thy kingdom come," and be resentful toward God and those he allows to enter the kingdom in his way and his timing?"
