We finally did our spring cleaning on the roof washers.  These are the big filters, that get out the physical stuff, before the water gets to the cistern and comes inside.

The overflow was clogged, and wasn’t draining out.

This thing was a mess.

And junk on the bottom – worms, bugs, silt.

The analogy to God isn’t perfect – God doesn’t force us to change, and doesn’t replace us every so often – but there’s a strong similarity.
