Exploring New Ways to Imagine God

Seeing a woman in the pulpit challenges assumptions people have about the categories of minister and woman. Those churches most able to support female leaders use a variety of images and metaphors to talk about, think about, and pray to God. This discovery suggests to author Sarah Sentilles that congregations could benefit from exploring new and different ways of thinking about God.  Her book, A Church of Her Own: What Happens When a Woman Takes the Pulpit, recommends reading texts from Black Theologian James Cone or Feminist Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza, for example. In this essay, she ponders how such explorations by lay members of congregations might change their relationship with God. Read the thought-provoking essay, Imagining God, offered by Faith & Leadership, an offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity.
