Habemus Altare
The Cry to God as ‘Father’
in the New Testament
is not a calm acknowledgement
of a universal truth about
God’s abstract fatherhood.
It is the Child’s cry
out of a nightmare.
It is the cry of outrage,
fear, shrinking away,
when faced with the horror
of the ‘world’
–yet not simply or exclusively
protest, but trust as well.
‘Abba Father’
all things are possible
to Thee…
Rowan Williams
