Thanks for this Paul, it's a great balance for me because I've just written about the church's relationship with God as feminine. So tricky to draw on the gender metaphor without over-extending it. I don't like calling contemplative theology 'feminine' but I do think Scripture uses feminine imagery for the church in relation to God in a way that it does not use masculine imagery. i.e We are the Bride and not the Bridegroom. And I do think that men and women tend towards different styles or structures of spirituality which are important to distinguish. It's a minefield of metaphors trying to articulate the human heart!
