    Maybe I'm Not Really All That Scared About It, Actually

    Saw a sign on a church marquee that said something to the effect of "Does God feel distant?  Guess who moved?"  Yeah, yeah, I know, God is always there, blah blah.  Question:  which parable is more theologically accurate/relevant -- the one about the lost...
