One of the things that helps people consider change is a safe space to try out a new thing (ie. clothing item, relationship, language). Though not all sisters have made the switch, AAWOL provided me with such a place to consider a language change from referring to God as “H/he, H/him, H/himself” to referring to God as “God, God, God’s self.”
So…if we all promise to treat each other’s online viewpoints with respect, would you venture out and consider commenting on the idea? Have you already considered? Have you switched? Have you kept the same language? Why? We want to know your thoughts…..(Use a pseudonym if that makes it more safe for you.)
