Oh, those masculine pronouns! Imagery of God as a (white) father figure. “The Big Man in the Sky.”
Even if we don’t believe God is technically male, all the language we use appropriates certain cultural contexts of male-ness.
But is God really male or female? Is God beyond gender? Or is God somehow mysteriously both gendered and not gendered? And does it really matter?
This week at New Wineskins we’ll talk about the issue of God and gender, discuss how patriarchy affects our perceptions of God, and consider the history and importance of the Divine Feminine.
Join us this Sunday, Oct. 22, in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company for what should be a lively and interesting conversation!
Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm
Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
