Sitting down with the latest Sentinel I received has finally prompted me to write to you about something that's been on my mind for a while.
I know that Mary Baker Eddy referred to men and women when she used the word man, and that she viewed God as both Mother and Father. However, I think that reference to God as Him and His, and to humankind as "man" still leads many of us to think of God and His children in more masculine terms. This is unfortunate because remembering God's unity of what we consider as feminine and masculine qualities is far more all-encompassing and empowering.
I know we can't change the wording of Mary Baker Eddy's writings, but perhaps more of an effort can be made in the Sentinel wording? Although some articles refer to God as "She, Her, Hers," many more use "He, Him, His." Perhaps the terms could be combined ("His/Her"), alternated, or another word could be substituted?
