Inclusive Language in Practice
On Sunday, my dear friend Durrell became the Canon Precenter at the Sunshine Cathedral in Florida. Isn't he cute? That's him in the green. So cute.
And we're so proud of him because it realizes a long dream of his to be an Episcopalian priest. And though it's not exactly the same, Durrell has realized his dream. In his email to announced this joyous occassion, he coined himself as "Father Durrell."
Of course, I could not let this just be. So, I emailed:
Congrats Cutie Durrell. But, dear love, I won't call
you Father. I don't even call God by that name.
And he replied:
you can continue to call me sister :-)
