God a He?
Dear Barbara & Trudy,
I am a fan of your newsletter but have always felt alienated from your reference to God as "He".
Could you consider being more gender-neutral?
Actually, Laurie, We are told that God doesn’t have gender. God’s energy is distinctive, however, and may “feel” like a he or she depending what the belief of the receiver is. In English, there is no real word for a neuter being except “it” and we just can’t seem to call God “it”. So we call Him what every religion does, political correctness notwithstanding. We call God, “He”. If you have a better idea, let us know. We are always open to suggestions.
