The memory is dim and faded, but I'm told I called him "da-da". Later, his name morphed to "Daddy" By the time I was in high school the label became "Dad". College years, plus a few more, his name was not lifted so much; but, finally. slipped into a more formal setting and "Father" found some use.
It could be said that prior words were "cut loose" as new relationships emerged. In Borg's sense the words were redeemed, [yet pointed to an unchanging-presence-differently-perceived function in my life].
I know many friends who relate to God on the "Daddy" or "Father" level of understanding. Although my current "name" uses more abstract terms (which relate to Scripture as metaphorical and moral) I still link to the emotional (mystical?) experiences of younger days for the "human" touch with God.
The presence of God has been with me (in varying degrees of closeness) all my life. To turn loose of all the ways I have characterized God, would be to turn loose of my identity. I am a Christian, non- dogmatic, passionate.
