Gareth Brandt (Professor of Practical Theology – Columbia Bible College) shared his poetry about three names that metaphorically describe God: “I Am” (YHWH, too holy to be pronounceable), “Nursing Mother” (more than just feminine aspects of God as Father), and “Abba” (Daddy, as Jesus’ very personal term of endearment). The more we open up to the mystery of God’s many names, the less likely we are to fall into idolatry, since God cannot be confined to a single metaphor. In gathering together to share our language for God’s working in our lives, we are inspired to respond in worship and in life. [KH]
