Names and images of God to be explored in survey

By Audrey J. Krumbach, GCSRW Director of Gender Justice and Education

The General Commission on the Status and Role of Women is seeking to rekindle conversations about the names and ways Christians talk about God, with a particular interest in understanding the impact of previous “inclusive language” movements.

In order to better understand the current attitudes within the United Methodist Church — and to shape future conversations about our theological priorities and language in reference to God — we seek participants in a survey about language for and images of God.    We are especially interested in hearing from lay perspectives, and we’d like to hear both from those who are strong supporters of “inclusive language” and those who do not believe it is an important or positive part of our faith.  Please share this survey widely so that UMC voices can be heard.

Would you consider taking this survey yourself AND PUSHING IT FORWARD to the United Methodists with whom you are in contact?

The link to the survey is: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/names4god

The survey will be open until October 31, 2013.

Should you have questions, please call me at the GCSRW office: 312-346-4900.
