Gender and Spirituality

Here is a link to a very interesting article on gender and spirituality.

http://www.malespirituality.org/masculine_spirituality.htm

I like this article because it extends my understanding of gender code switching, mentioned in a previous post, into the spiritual world. It makes sense that we must develop both the masculine and feminine in our own spirituality, as well as within the established church. Certainly the church feels like a boys club in many ways, and yet the worship does often feminize the worshipper with images of surrender. This would, of course, mirror the analogy of the church being the bride of Christ. What are your thoughts about the article?
