Christ: The Mother Hen, by Kelly Latimore April 21, 2022. "I have often felt that we don't use the metaphor of Christ as Mother Hen enough. Drawn from Christ's own words in Matthew's gospel, It was about time to paint an icon of it."
“Metaphor is the only possible language available to religion because it alone is honest about Mystery. The underlying messages that different religions and denominations use are often in strong agreement, but they use different images to communicate their own experience of union with God." ~Richard Rohr
