Last Tuesday, Dr. Priscilla Pope-Levison facilitated a discussion titled “Gender and God Language.” She started the discussion by playing two different songs that talk about God, one that used “he” language and another that used “she” language.
Students reflected on the ways in which gender pronouns affect our perceptions of God, and Dr. Pope-Levison stated that the way we talk about God affects not only how we perceive God, but also affects our relationship with God. She challenged the audience to name God in prayer with names that might feel different or unfamiliar, but which offer other important images of God that can change our perceptions.
