Parable of the lonely woman

Once, God appeared to a woman. “I am the Lord,” God said.

“You aren’t the Lord,” the woman replied. “I would recognize the Lord on sight.”

God appeared to a second woman. “I am the Lord,” God said.

“Not true,” she replied. “I would recognize the Lord on sight.”

God appeared to a third woman. “I am the Lord,” God said.

Now this woman had no friends and was very lonely. “I don’t know if you are the Lord or not,” she said. “But I’m lonely. Will you be my friend?”

“Of course,” God replied, and so they walked together.
