Title

Well Chosen Words! Inclusive Language with Reference to the People of God. Expansive Language with Reference to God.

Description

This is a tri-fold brochure of the PC (USA) that offers inclusive words, language, images and principles for inclusion and justice to all people, including the people of God in the PC (USA). “A concern for inclusive language bespeaks the church’s emerging conviction both that the diversity of the people of God is to be acknowledged and embraced in such a way that all may feel included, as well as the realization that every reference to God is limited in its capacity to express the reality and mystery of the One who has so variously encountered us” (Definitions and Guidelines on Inclusive Language, 197th General Assembly (1985), PCUSA, Advisory Council on Discipleship and Worship, Council on Theology and Culture).
