God became poor;
God plumbed the depths;
God used body language;
God used means to save mean people;
God came as a foreigner to earth for our benefit;
God crossed the widest cultural chasm in the cosmos;
Meaning became matter in a moment,
Matter became movement,
Meaning moved us.
Matter matters for God,
For the Ultimate became intimate.
