A Gem from "feminine-genius"

Genevieve Kineke included this thought in remarks on her "feminine-genius" blog this past Sunday:

"God the Father is not in the image and likeness of our earthly fathers. If one's father has good attributes, it's all the easier to find Abba-Pater, but each person has to get past his or her father's defects (through forgiveness) to find how wonderful and faithful God Himself is. Removing patriarchal language will not heal the wound, but bury it and create a false reality. God wants us to call Him Father, and if it is painful, then there is work to do. It is well worth it."
