Refusing to Uphold Gender as a God

October 23, 2014

“A church that is fully welcoming to human beings who are not gender conforming will not uphold gender as a idol in the place of God. We just won’t. We won’t let this be a stumbling block. We will open this door and hold it open. We will be a church that welcomes, and a church that sings.”

Read “Jesus and the She-God (On Using Female Pronouns For God)” on Esther Emery’s Church in the Canyon blog.
