I use male pronouns to describe God. For some people this is a problem; for some it references back to a patriarchal system that oppressed women and for others it’s not an accurate way of referencing God who transcends gender. Whatever the reason for disliking the use of male terms for God, if you fall into that category I apologize. My use of the male is not meant to imply that God is in fact male, it is instead simply a remnant of my upbringing. If you dislike the male terms please feel free to replace them with the feminine or asexual terms or simply God, whichever works best for you.
