Call the Spirit "She"?

No doubt many evangelicals will be rejoicing over the appointment of 'yet another evangelical bishop'. The Rev'd Dr Graham Kings was appointed a few weeks ago as suffragan Bishop of Sherborne. Unfortunately he also wrote a recent Pentecost piece for Fulcrum addressing the Holy Spirit as "She".

I really don't see why this is so unfortunate. Dr Kings is specifically not arguing for feminine language to become the norm in our liturgy or preaching. Rather, he is writing a poem.

I know this is a late comment, but I see this as unfortunate, as well. Shades of The Shack?
