Gender

Individuals of all genders can face discrimination based on stereotypes and assumptions. However, as many societies have developed to favour men, it is the case that gender discrimination and violence is experienced disproportionately by women, and by transgender or non-binary people.

Christianity, as with most other world religions, has assigned leadership and power privilege to men and emphasised masculine imagery and language to describe God.
There is more diverse language and imagery in the Bible and we hope that Methodists will begin to enjoy using that more.

We seek to learn more from each other as we commit to life-long-learning about God’s human family.
