Raechel
Gender: Female
Usage: Hawaiian
Hi Peter (waves to Chas). I can't say "God" because it sodnus too male-gendered and authoritarian and all those things I originally rejected in Christianity. Luckily Unitarians don't go in for gendered language for the Divine; they tend to say things like "Spirit of Life" instead.My HPs told me long ago that vowels were feminine (because expansive), and consonants were masculine (because contracting), so that's why Hebrew is not written with vowels. So I dislike the omission of the 'o' in God. I like the exclamation mark, though!Margaret Starbird (author of "The Goddess in the Gospels") calls it Godde - which is fine for writing it but doesn't sound much different when you say it.I prefer Ain Soph Aur or the Tao, as I think it is quite impersonal (though it may be true, as some Christian theologians say, that our persona, our 'I', springs into life before the Great I Am).I've been having conversations with a Sufi friend recently, and she tells me that Allah includes both male and female aspects.
