fear of God abandoning us


As I listen to the stories of my directees it strikes me that we all feel abandoned and that we expend great (and frequently misplaced) energy trying to deal with our grief and rage at parental desertion. Misplaced, because we do not tap deep enough for the roots of our fear: that we will be abandoned by God.
