Offerings

Offerings are highly customizable and here to meet every need from traditional Catholic Sacraments to less traditional Rites of Passage.

 

How do we name God?  In all sacraments, including the traditional sacraments, the recipient chooses how to name God.  Sacraments are to grow and to benefit the receiver.  If the recipient wishes God to be referred to as Father, as Mother, or more neutral language, it is their choice.

Jill’s personal beliefs are that society needs to be able to use the word Mother and female pronouns for God in polite company, meaning in mainstream worship services. Why is this important?  This brings awareness to the fact that God is both male and female yet neither male nor female, missing an opportunity to experience (or perceive) aspects of God that have traditionally been labeled with a construct called feminine.  We have labeled and then separated out any caring activities with the word feminine.  These activities belong to all body types.  God is undefinable, a universal life force. By continuing to use only Father or He as identifiers, we’ve become blind as we only see God as male and within the false construct of masculine.  Mother and the pronoun She is considered weak by association of the word feminine.  Using the term Mother for God is also seen as non-Christian.  Either way we diminish Her as a viable name of God.  She draws distain and that has to change.  In order to move to a more inclusive, universal concept of God and to raise women up as equal in this society, it is imperative that we remove this aversion to engendering God as female.

* A special note to women who are frightened and may believe that an exorcism is what they need. Exorcisms are outdated and dangerous processes that can reinforce existing problems and can be very dangerous to your mental health. Please call me to discuss as I am familiar with these issues. The help you need can be treated responsibly and bring tremendous relief. When needed, we can work with mental health professionals to ensure that what you are experiencing is treated appropriately. Much of what seems like “a possession” comes from the way we have interpreted life experiences that bring us into mental conflict.

I LOOK FORWARD TO BEING OF SERVICE TO YOU
