When God Was A Little Girl




"....as a man who’s been deeply shaped by feminist theology, I am convinced that the way we image—and gender—God affects the way we value gender among humans.

I wanted my daughter to know in her imagination, which is where our deepest truths reside, that she, too, was fully in the “image of God.”  - David Weiss
