THIS WEEK'S REFLECTION
Gender Justice Sunday

When you think of “God” what do you picture in your imagination?
Why does our language and imagery for God matter?
What do our most familiar images and metaphors say about God?
What do they say about humankind?
A group of 6-8 of us had a great series of conversations about gender justice with the curriculum our church, the ELCA, as we work toward a new social statement, “Faith, Sexism, and Justice.” We learned about Lutheran approaches to the Bible and social issues as well as exploring issues of gender justice from sexual violence to economic sexism to images of God. We are excited to share some of the insights and ongoing questions in our Sunday gathering.
We invite you to view this diverse array of images of God and consider:
How do these images make you feel?
What spoke to you in your yearnings for God and why? Which images strike you as “normal”?
Which images speak to you in a new way?
