On the next station over, the radio snaps and whooshes like the wind is blowing through the broadcasting station and Brother Green is speaking on the subject of the devil and God’s coming day of wrath.

Brother Green says “devil” like it’s two words: “dev-ill.” He tells me horrible things are going to happen to me and he asks God to not kill me at least until Brother Green finishes the sermon. He asks himself questions — Brother Green do you really believe that God is vengeful? — and he answers them — yes I do.
