...Jason sat on the table, putting his feet on the chair. He turned to the young pot-heads and told another parable: “Theology is like a marijuana seed.” This got their attention. “The marijuana seed contains no THC. For those of you who don’t know, THC is the chemical in pot that gets you high. One day, a young man took a marijuana seed and planted it in a wooded area. With a little nurturing, it grew into a big beautiful cannabis plant. The plant provided enough free bud to turn on him and all of his friends. Like the seed’s latent THC, each of you contains a divine spark. Nurture this spark into a flame and light up all that you come into contact with."
