this is so great @Pondering. Having first hand knowledge of this is quite enlightening.
I grew up as a christian and never really thought of the spirit as having either gender.just like I don't think of the wind having a gender. but if anything, why not feminine? a cool piece of knowledge to have either way.
@markjperkins non-English speaking Christians in Europe and Latin America and beyond absolutely think of the wind and the Holy Spirit as male, I have found. Language is a funny thing.
@Pondering I wouldn't doubt that. I often find myself saying things are male for no reason, it's kinda the default position which I have caught myself on a few times. however i often think of cars and ship's as feminine. language is funny you're right.
