Agrippa's Statement of Faith
There is no more humble signature on a piece of art than Agrippa's on the Pantheon in Rome-- Agrippa: I made this.
I know it's tranlsated: "built during his third consulate." But it means "I made this."
And why I feel it's humble: I know what I've done and what I need to take responsibility for. Agrippa was the God of what he did. I am the God of what I have done.
I am not the God of what I have not done and do not insist that I am the God of everything. And yet there are things I have not done and yet are.
There is a God. And it's not me. . . .
