We can know that God is given the title "Father" - and I have my theory as to why but I'll reserve that. We can know that Jesus was male and
My husband often relates to God father to father. He just can't imagine a father this, or imagines that a father would that.. I love listening to him.
I've heard some talk of the "divine feminine" here and there, and know that it has been touched on in the media. For me, it still seems somewhat removed from anything that I can relate to.
We could drop the "father" and argue that God is genderless and sexless. I'm just not comfortable with that personally. Not just because of the whole weirdness that I feel considering it because of my upbringing, but because I don't want to take away something that men (my hubby even) could relate to about God.
Also, I relate to God as a Dad, and how I see that playing out. There truly are things about Dads that I think are different than Moms -- whether real or perceived.
God related to humanity as a Mom. Here's an example:
Luk 13:34 Jerusalem! Jerusalem! The one killing the prophets, and stoning those having been sent to her, how often I desired to gather your children in the way a hen gathers her brood under the wings, and you did not desire it
I'm wondering what insights we might have about God in relating as a different gender. If you imagined God as "Mom", how would you understand God's wrath? Love? Jealousy? Grace? Mercy? Etc?
