Years ago, I stumbled across a quote I’ve never been able to forget: “Sociologists say it is common for people to perceive that God is like their fathers or fatherly figures in their lives.”

If your father was silent, absent, angry, prideful, abusive, etc., you could believe God was that way, too.

What does it mean to say God is a father to the fatherless when we cannot see, hear or touch him? In this episode, Kia unpacks her own father wound story and how she started her journey to view God as Father.
