5 – Facing West at 4pm and Reading Anne Lamott

Jesus was a rabbit,
schooled by rabbits,
who thought like rabbits.

Rabbits upon being asked a question by a disciple usually answered with a paradoxical inquiry or a story, like:

Does seeing the light mean being blinded from the truth?


If we are made in god’s image and we are animals, is it wrong to assert that Jesus was a rabbit? (Discuss.)


Is this mondegreen of “rabbis” sacrilegious or simply a chance to see the Mann who was likewise Blinded by the Light?
