The Church Of England Is Considering Giving God Gender-Neutral Pronouns

It looks like the Church of England is leaning towards changing God’s pronouns to ‘they’ and ‘them’ to encourage “inclusivity”, NY Post reported.  The church, which is led by King Charles III, announced that its Liturgical Commission has inaugurated a “special project” to look into updating future teachings, which will go into effect later this year.  “After some dialogue between the two Commissions in this area, a new joint project on gendered language will begin this spring,” said Rev Dr. Michael Ipgrave, Bishop of Lichfield and vice-chair of the liturgical commission responsible for the change. “In common with other potential changes to authorized liturgical provision, changing the wording and number of authorized forms of absolution would require a full Synodical process for approval.” According to the New York Post, some have already modified certain references such as replacing “he” and “him” with just God or “they” and “them.” They have also changed the Lord’s Prayer from “Our Father” to “Our Father and Mother.”  The Church of England’s spokesperson told Reuters that, “Christians have recognized since ancient times that God is neither male nor female… The variety of ways of addressing and describing God found in scripture has not always been reflected in our worship. There has been greater interest in exploring new language since the introduction of our current forms of service in contemporary language more than 20 years ago.” #Clique, what are your thoughts?
