A few days ago an AP news photo featured a plain white box labeled, "Letters to God." A rabbi was taking them out one by one and placing them into the cracks of Jerusalem's Western Wall. The unopened letters joined the other messages, prayers and communications crammed into the interstices between Wall's stones by visitors great and small -- from children who have just learned to write to one from Pope John Paul II himself. When the Israel postal service sorters come upon a letter addressed to the Almighty, they direct it to a special pile for delivery at the Wall in Jerusalem.
