Mother God

Long before God was imagined as a  tribal warrior or sovereign king, the primordial understanding of Divine was a fertile, female giver of life. Even as the male image of a Father God has become dominate in modern religions, Mother God persists in language and imagery that ranges from Mother Earth, to God's Womb, to Mother Hen, to Spirit Sophia, to Mother Mary, and more.

Today, March 8, is International Women's Day, a day to recognize, contemplate, and celebrate the central role of women in human history and human hope for the future. Today is a day for each of us to reflect on the life giving, Divine, feminine within, around, and through all creation, not just one day but every day.

I hope all women will embrace their life-giving Divinity. I hope all men can recognize and honor the Divine Feminine that gives and nourish their lives, and all life.
