When God’s people split in two, and God’s priests split themselves between Temples and mountains and plains, and God’s prophets split into arguments and complaints, God chose Elijah to deliver his message to people, rich and plain. Elijah conquered the wind and rain in God’s name, but he couldn’t conquer fear, so he ran away. Then God sent an angel to feed Elijah in the desert. He sent a storm to rage at him on the mountain, an earthquake to shake him, and roaring flames. But the voice of God was still and small and gentle, resounding with love again.
