Moses had a stutter and a fearful disposition; I'm an introvert and have a fearful disposition. To Moses, God gave Aaron and a big stick; God gave me characters and big hair. In a church, it is amazing to see how much a visiting minister can get away with. He can poke fingers in appalling political underbellies, topple ungodly paradigms, call a sin a sin and then leave town. I needed a medium to allow me to say difficult things and then leave town, so to speak. My characters arrive dressed in absurdity, hyperbole and irony, carrying an overnight bag full of firecrackers!
