On Saturday morning, November 2, 2019, I am going to lead a one-session course for the Alternative Seminary, called Transgender Liberation: Intersectional Identities, Alternate Genders, and the Biblical Testimony of Eunuchs.
I will be teaching from OtherWise Christian: A Guidebook for Transgender Liberation, with a particular emphasis on Section 4: Eunuchs, Eunuchs, and More Eunuchs. Yes, if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’ll be talking about eunuchs!
10am to Noon
Germantown Mennonite Church
21 W Washington Ln, Philadelphia, PA 19144
A $5 donation is suggested to help defray costs of refreshments.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-842-1890
You don’t need to read the book to participate in the class. I will have books with me for sale (cash, Cash App, PayPal, Venmo, credit, debit) and will be willing to sign them before and after class.
This is a wonderful sort of reconnecting with community as the Alternative Seminary was started by folk I knew from The Other Side magazine. I actually taught a one-session course on “Development of the New Testament Canon” which must have been back in the late 1990s! Here is a bit more about the Alternative Seminary:
Since 1993, various groups of Christians in the Philadelphia area have gathered for in-depth biblical study, blending serious scholarly work with personal experience and a concern for the connections between the biblical story and our contemporary society. Our study has been influenced by liberation theology and seeks to model new forms of biblical and theological study and a new vision of what it means to be the church in our culture.
