If you’ve wondered why I write so much on inclusive language, you’ll find answers in this presentation. The two questions I most often get about including female names and images of the Divine are: Does it matter? Is it biblical? Watch this video for our answers.
Larry E. Schultz and I collaborated on this presentation for the virtual Hymn Society Conference in 2020. We’re also grateful for the collaboration of pianist Cindy Schultz and members of the Pullen Memorial Baptist Church choir.
In this video you’ll also find applications of inclusive language in songs and stories. You can use the video in many ways such as in small groups, worship services, church retreats, music camps, and individual study and meditation. You can use the entire video or parts of the video for an extended series.
