Quick background to my question. I just 2 weeks ago started volunteering at a juvenile detention center through our archdiocese. Once a week a small group of volunteers goes to the cottages to offer Bible study - going over the Sunday readings - to any teenagers that wants to. Unitl my background clearence is complete I go to cottage with another volunteer. This week I was with a volunteer that referred to God as She when she was discussing one of the readings. The teenagers all looked surprised and one said that God was Father. Her response was that we are made in His image, male and female. I did not say anything but I could tell this bothered the girls. I know it bothered me. Help. Is it against Church teaching to refer to God as She? Any documentation would be helpful. I did not challenge her in front of the kids but feel I need to say something to her before next week. My biggest concern is that she is confusing the kids and want to make sure she is sharing Church teaching and not just her own agenda.
Hope this is the right area for this thread.
