On too much literalizing the parenting roles of the Divine …
In a quiet moment while Lietta and I were talking about the church lip service given a Mother in Heaven, it occurred to me that all of us raised in the Church have been in effect raised by a single male parent
… one who in one form or another keeps her “locked” away from us
… whose parenting style is definitely patriarchal
… who deliberately chooses to “father” by use of authorized messengers of The Book
… and who expects us to progress in whatever direction we progress
… absent the powerful and living awareness of the Female in Heaven
This thought makes me feel like something other than a human spiritual child of God … more like a spiritual half-orphan.
