At Emanuel, every effort is made to lift the language of worship above the limitations of referring to God in exclusively male terms. This effort is made in order to honor the infinite greatness of God and is intended as an act of praise to the One in whom we live and move and have our being. So you will hear  God referred to as Creator, Redeemer and Holy Spirit. You probably won’t hear the words Father and Son and Ghost. Don’t be alarmed. We do believe in one God in three persons, we just don’t believe in the gender specific language to describe or pray to such an awesome God. We also don’t believe that ancient language always helps us to understand God’s presence in our lives. 

 

Come open to new expressions in the prayer and praise of God.
