In this time of rhetoric and chaos, we need to remember that God has a feminine side. I want to share this prayer that is always close to my heart. It was taught to me by my father, a non-practicing Jew.
Certainly, the concept of the Holy Spirit as feminine is not a new one, and it's not without historical and scriptural support. Currently, the tradition of associating the Wisdom of God (Sophia literally means "wisdom" in Greek) with the Holy Spirit and to think of that Spirit as feminine is a minority view, but I've never been afraid to be in a minority. I love the idea of a Mother God, of a feminine Holy Spirit. It's comforting, and has Biblical support.
"So God created humankind in God's own image, in the image of God they were created male and female." (Gen 1:27 NIV)
"Mother God, there are so many decisions to make. I don't know what is best for now or the future. You said if we lack wisdom, all we need to do is ask you.
I really need you to put wisdom into my mind, heart and soul today. I need the peace of your nurturing love."
St. John The Apostle MCC
