OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance

OtherWise Christian 2 v. 2 (5)-200
New (draft) cover! Revised title!

As the first edition of OtherWise Christian is released, a call for contributions is launching for OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance. This sequel will be an anthology of personal reflections, drawing on both classic articles and new content from contemporary OtherWise-gendered authors.

I am especially looking for personal reflections on biblical texts and how they connect with your OtherWise life.

From the Epilogue of OtherWise Christian:

I know that I have only scratched the surface of OtherWise insights in this initial project. I am particularly interested in sharing more reflections and insights from intersex people, non-binary people, multi-lingual people, disabled people, Catholics, Mormons, Jews, and Muslims, as well as people who are Black, Indigenous, or otherwise People of Color. My ultimate hope and desire is to support the next generation in taking this work to the next level.

How is your experience reflected in the Christian Bible? Where do you find resonance among the stories of our ancestors in faith? What OtherWise Bible stories have I missed? How would you approach these topics differently? What are your strategies for resisting the “two and only two” gender paradigm? What are your strategies for bringing healing to the broken places you have witnessed?

You certainly do not have to be a pastor or a priest, a professor or a scholar to be a part of the resistance! Indeed, we need more dreamers and dancers, poets and lovers, sacred prophets and OtherWise disruptors. I would love to hear from you. Please be in touch.
