Tuesday is National Coming Out Day, and we’re going to welcome God out of the closet.
The way people have thought about human beings has always influenced us to imagine a certain kind of god. For example, if we think humans are the most important beings in creation, we’re likely to imagine that God is a lot like us: two arms, two legs, a temper. And it works the other way too. The way we describe the divine affects how we think about human beings, so that male gods put male humans at the top of the social pyramid. Which leads to an interesting question: if we asked God, “What are your pronouns?,” what would God say?
Worship leader: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern
