I see one small problem here, although it only effects SJ, and then, only in
the Flow. If the priest is doing the channeling when he *throws* the spell,
instead of when he memorizes it, this would cut all priest off of spells
above second level when in the flow, or anywhere eles the God couldn't reach.

Now, if the energies where being channeled and stored during memorization, it
wouldn't cause this problem, and spell casting in the flow wouldn't have the
extra problem.
