It immediately reminds me of a story told by Marsha Sinetar in her book:
"Developing a 21-st Century Mind" :
And Jesus said unto them: "Who do you say I am?"
And they replied, "You are the eschatological manifestation of the ground
of our being; the kermygma in which we find the ultimate meaning of our
interpersonal relationship."
And Jesus said, "What?"

What do you say, Richard?
