God Male & Female: What Gendering God Says About What We Believe

June 30th, 2021 5:15 pm

Dear Friends of WSCF-Europe,

This year WSCF-Europe is exploring gender discourse and the issues pertaining to gendered relationships in our Churches. ‘To what extent does our gendering of God contribute to the issues surrounding these relationships?’ and ‘to what extent does God need to be gendered?’ – are the central questions of our event God Male and Female: What Gendering God Says About What We Believe. These topics will be explored from two perspectives: that of the theologian and that of the pastor. 

The event aims to raise our awareness of the Bible’s use of different paradigms and archetypes to describe God, and to acknowledge that the Bible does not limit itself to the use of ‘He/Him’ pronoun. Participants will be supplied with a number of leading questions prior to the event and we will examine how the participant’s attitude has changed after the dialogue. 

God Male and Female will take place on Saturday, July 10th, at 11.00 CEST. If you are interested in this event, either from a theological or pastoral point of view, and are ready to look beyond the normalised use of the ‘He/Him’ pronoun to describe God, please fill-in the application form and join us for what is sure to be a stimulating discussion. Do also be sure to look out for our social media posts on this theme, where there will be a short introductory video – see our Instagram and Facebook for more details.
