I would like to give a standing ovation to Tim Bentch for “Yes, God Is Our Father” (June 4). Having a distant father, with whom I never had a conversation, calling God “Father” was difficult. But over time I came to treasure naming God as Father, because it meant I was personally cared for. It was this personal touch that allowed me to heal my emotions toward my earthly father. I cherish the biblical wording.
