Often when we use adjectives for God we reach for the big guns but find that they don’t quite pack the punch we’d hoped. We say ‘Holy’ and ‘Glorious’, ‘Supreme’ and ‘Majestic’ but the more we Capitalize the Words, The More People Just File Them Away In SPECIAL GOD-SPEAK files, never to consider them again.
