Border Crossings and a God who Doesn’t Behave

God doesn’t know how to behave. I find this annoying.
Think about it; if anyone should know how to act, how to ‘play by the rules,’ if anyone should know what our roles are and should be, it would be God. God has a parking space—and it’s a good one: Employee of the Month—the best we have to offer. We can see it from our window. It’s only natural to give God a space; in fact, it’s very generous of us.
We know how God is. So, God has a place…and each of us has his or her place. That’s order. That’s creation. That’s the way it should be. But God doesn’t know how to behave and only rarely parks in the right place. Some mornings we wake up to find the car parked in a drunken fit on the front lawn, skid marks on the pavement out front. God doesn’t know how to behave.
What is God thinking?
