In this episode, Rev Karla breaks down how we can release God from physical attributes and understand the experience of God to be the undefinable, the indescribable, and the unexplainable. We have humanized God through a patriarchal lens, but God is bigger than the image we created. Rev Karla talks about the many names for God in Christianity and religions all around the world. Rev Karla also discusses where we can find examples of the feminine power of the Divine in scripture and closes the episode with how God is revealed within ourselves. So, if God is all of these things, then God is black, gay, and female. You can read more from Rev Karla on this topic in her blog post.
