This week, I will be gathering with the Fellowship of Affirming Ministries (TFAM) in Atlantic City, NJ for the TFAM Convocation. The Convocation is an annual gathering of TFAM folk from across the country and around the world.
One day, a long time ago, some guy named Peterson invited me out to have coffee in Philadelphia and to discuss his play about transgender Bible characters. Honestly, I was really skeptical. However, Peterson had done his homework, not only in terms of the Bible, but by talking extensively with people of transgender experience to really develop some awareness and cultural competence of our lived experience.
