“I think that God knit me together in my mother’s womb, but has also been knitting me together every day since. I think God knit together my body and my identity. I’m not just a woman. I’m not just a man. I’m transgender. That’s what God intended.” This is a quote from the introduction of the book Transforming: The Bible and the Lives of Transgender Christians by Austen Hartke which will be the focus of our summer book discussion Sundays at 9 am led by Pr. Jennifer. This book provides access into an underrepresented and misunderstood community to learn more about transgender people, faith, and the future of Christianity. By introducing transgender issues and language and providing stories of both biblical characters and real-life narratives from transgender Christians living today, the author helps us visualize a more inclusive Christianity.
