Have you seen the one with Friend Anthony Kirk, titled “Made in the Image of God: On Being a Transgender Pastor”? He speaks about the challenge of being an open transgender minister, particularly in small communities, and the spiritual journey that brought him to this calling.
“[Psalm 139 is] the beautiful reminder that God knew us since our conception, as we were formed. God knew us and loved us and created us long before society put labels on us and made assumptions, for all of us are fearfully and wonderfully made, and whatever our gender expression or identity, we are made in the image of God, too.”
—Anthony Kirk (he/him/his), pastor of Klamath Falls (Ore.) Friends Church
