Transgender & Christian
MARCH 10 - Caitlyn Jenner was all the tabloid rage last year, putting transgender issues front and centre in the news. So how come churches can't seem to talk about the subject?
While Christians for decades now, along with the rest of our culture, have been learning to think in new ways about alternative sexualities - the phenomenon of transexualism and the narratives of transgendered people has only recently been given some equal time. How do we define and understand transexualism? What do we learn from transgender people and their experience? How do we think about all of this in relation to the Bible, sexual ethics, science, and social justice. And most importantly, how do churches welcome trans people into the community of redemption with equal love and acceptance?
