What makes you think God is male?
My inherited Presbyterian church seemed to assume this as did all the other churches I was familiar with. As a budding young feminist, I found myself asking this question. It has been one of the themes of my life, from being a religion major at Duke (where God was always male) through being in a women only coven for 20 some years, producing my own Goddess Grace Moving Meditation, teaching and performing goddess bellydance, writing and singing spiritually grounded activist music (is there a word for that?) and spreading priestessing in a culture that doesn’t recognize that concept. (Spell check even rejected it.) My assessment is that what the world needs now is the Return of the Queen - the immanent form of God and the source of our everyday reality. And we need “how to” classes in working with Her. That’s my current project. It’s moving kinda slow.
