In an ancient Greek icon, the archangel Raphael is holding a transparent sphere. Perhaps it is the circle whose center is everywhere; perhaps it is one of God's tears. Perhaps we can think of all the words, metaphors, and images we use to talk about God and to God, and that arise from plunging into the wellspring of God, as the sphere's surface tension. Below the surface, within the sphere, their many meanings mingle and fuse to form a single lens through which we see may see God.
