Transgender & Christian

Transgender and Christian project creator and educator Austen Hartke will facilitate a special presentation about the basics of understanding and respecting diverse gender identities, affirmation and hope for transgender people of faith, action steps for allies, and strategies for how churches can support transgender community members in the congregation and beyond. This Lifelong Learning event, sponsored by the Health Ministry team, is highly encouraged for those who feel unsure about the topic, as well as those who are familiar and/or transgender themselves. If you are less familiar with LGBTQ+ topics, Reconciling Works can help provide some more background information: https://www.reconcilingworks.org/resources/sogi/
