The great creative power is everything. If you leave out one whole chunk of it, by making God only masculine, you have to redress the balance.  —Martha Boesing—

What a blessing, to be part of God! For many of us, invoking God with a male pronoun put an obstacle in the path of our spiritual growth. We felt left out. Worship of something called “He” or “Him” didn’t jibe with our spirituality.
When we pray, we pray to a spiritual source that includes everything, that leaves
nothing out: sexes, all races, all ages and conditions.Some of us had no trouble understanding that God is everything, no matter how God is invoked.

But whatever our path to spirituality, the Twelve Step program has enriched our understanding. Before we practiced the Twelve Steps, we had allowed ourselves to forget the strength and nurture that are always at hand,
and now we are grateful to be reminded that God is with us, within us, and all is well. One woman says, “When I feel far from God, I ask myself: Who moved?” God is always there. Today I will pray for the wisdom to stay close to my spiritual source, the Creator Spirit.
