As a result of teaching on poetry and metaphor today, I used a quote from Lauren F. Winner’s “Wearing God”. I haven’t read it but now it is on my list. Anyone read it? It fit perfectly with the “Mother God” poem. My students wrote their own metaphor for what or who they thought God was. Some broke my heart. One boy wrote, “God is like my Dad. Mean and punishing when I’m not what he wants but I guess he doesn’t give up on me. Poem over.”
