How Do You Envision God? (Part 2 of 2) 

Published the week of October 11-17, 2000

Chris Cella

"God is like a good pair of shoes or a good hat. It makes you happy, walking through life with a good pair of shoes and good hat. God is a creation. Happiness is a creation. I'm happy, I'm here."

A.J. Miller
Second-Grader, St. Roch School

"I imagine a nice, handsome young man like Ricky Martin."

Daron James
Sales, Sprint PCS

"The picture I get: human features, long hair, bronze-colored skin, probably about 5-foot-10-and-a-half , maybe 185 pounds. Just a normal guy, someone you'd see walking down the street -- in downtown Harlem."

Dale C.
Truck Driver

"There's no actual picture that we define God by; that's what people hold in their heart. God is a spirit, but he's real. Once there were many gods, and they were all playing over marbles. One of these gods stood back; he kept his mouth shut and watched the other gods play, and then he made his move. That god was our God, the one that won in the marble game."

Barb Lombardo
Interior Designer, Carrie Brockman Design Group

"Well, it's not a man. I think it's a spiritual being that is sort of a light, fluffy-cloud, happy-sky creature, certainly not anything dark and ominous."

Lexie Korba
Student, St. Louis Community College-Meramec

"Honestly, I don't believe in God, but if I did I would envision a crusty heap of garbage oozing rancid sandwich dressing. It's got little pink bunnies poking out, looking around, and it's emanating the sound that cicadas make when they die."
