Our own Louis Mitchell quoted in the Philadelphia Inquirer this week!

"Our Bible" is a new app that includes more than 300 devotionals, podcasts and essays geared toward LGBTQ Christians and progressive people of faith.

There have been some click bait articles floating around lately about God-language in the Episcopal Church. Our friends at TransEpiscopal compiled this helpful blog providing more context on what's going on...

What language works for you in talking about a Higher Power or Helping Spirits?

"This conversation about God, language and gender isn't newfangled, 'politically correct', cultural capitulation. It's old theological news.... And it's a conve...rsation TransEpiscopal wants to see deepen not only at General Convention this summer but on the ground in congregations."

There have been several stories following up on two of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington's recently passed resolutions (re: God and gender expansive language and re: fully embracing trans people) and many of the reports have been inaccurate and/or inflammatory and click-bait-y. For those of you looking for a different perspective, here's one from TransEpiscopal situating the resolutions in a longer theological and ecclesial conversation about God, gender, language, and trans justice.

Real people answering questions you've asked google about the trans experience.

With so much resistance to honoring the self-knowledge of transgender children lately, this is lovely to see!

About a year ago, Jonah and Dani Gabriel’s daughter came to the couple with an announcement.  The 8-year-old announced he was a boy.

Help us to support Black Trans Women! In loving memory of Minister Bobbie Jean Baker (1964-2014). Give today. Give monthly. Take an offering in your congregation.

Four years ago today, many of us woke up to the news that Minister Bobbie Jean Baker was tragically killed by a drunk driver on her way home from Watch Night services. BJ touched the hearts of so many and was passionate about supporting transgender women of color who had fa...ced struggles similar to her own.

The Bobbie Jean Baker Memorial Fund is established in her memory. A Task Force is currently in the process of developing an application process to make awards in support of the leadership of Black Trans Women in Christian ministry.

Looking forward to being in touch with you throughout 2018!
Peace, Louis

As we get closer to 2018, I hold positive energy for all of us as we continue to navigate systems and institutions that don't seem to care about us. One of the things that I've observed over the years, is that we are strong and resilient. We are more powerful than we know! Lean in to community, as best you can. And know that we are here with you! Peace! Louis
