Words are powerful. The words we use and how we use them affects us and those who hear or read our words. What is the clearest, most accurate way to refer to the Supreme Being. This is something I have been wrestling with for years. Let me start withe the noun and then the pronoun. I do not like to use the word "God." That word carries a lot of baggage with it. On one end of the spectrum, "God" is any of the myriad deities worshiped by the Hindus, and may include Brahma and all that crew, as well as cows and snakes and even - I have been told - Indira Gandhi. On the other end, we have the one God, Jehovah/Yahweh or Allah, pointing an accusing finger at us and condemning us to eternal damnation for our sins. There are many other words that can be used. I like Deity, but that seems kind of distant to me. Sikhs often use Waheguru, which is fine amongst ourselves, but is likely to be very off-putting in mixed groups. I have narrowed my own personal choices down to two: The Creator and The One. They are accurate and, I believe, unambiguous and would be understood in any group. Then, what pronouns can we use? The first person masculine, "He/Him," is the most common. The feminine, "She/Her," always draws raised eyebrows and often a few smirks. The neutral "It" is the most accurate, but is cold and too impersonal. I favour the gender-neutral pronouns, "Hse/Hir," but until they become more accepted, I fear they are more disruptive than enlightening. I really haven't totally worked this out and will continue to use whatever pronoun strikes my fancy at the moment. Please share your own thoughts and opinions on this. I am really curious how others approach the subject.
