We have seen ELCA leadership attempt to eliminate masculine pronouns when referring to God (see here, here and here).
This is confirmed again in a written conversation between three ELCA seminarians:
Person One - posts that he - "(i)s unsure if Wartburg's conversion of me toward a posture of inclusive language about God is a blessing or a curse as I learn songs for VBS!!! I cringe every 4 seconds as I hear masculine pronouns!"
Person Two - "I do the same thing here during bible studies!!!"
Person Three - "YOU TOO!!!!! It's driving me NUTS! Hahahaha...funny thing is I NEVER thought it would."
(Person One is referring to Wartburg Theological Seminary when he says "Wartburg.")
It is interesting how removing masculine pronouns for God is called "inclusive."
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
