Mx Chris is glad to shape custom presentations for your community, drawing on themes from OtherWise Christian, their non-binary OtherWise life, and from more than 20 years of life among multi-faith, transgender community! Examples include:
Transgender Liberation: Intersectional Identities, Alternate Genders, and the Biblical Testimony of Eunuchs
2 hour classroom format exploring key passages about eunuchs in the Christian Bible, using small group discussion, as well as large group conversation and Q&A with the presenter.
What is This? – A sermon exploring trans experience with an emphasis on non-binary identity (lectionary-based: Exodus 16:2-4, 9-15, Romans 12:1-6a)
Love One Another – A sermon at MCC San Francisco honoring the expertise they already have, while encouraging them to be specific about their support for transgender people (lectionary-based: 2 Thessalonians 2:13-17, sermon begins at approximately 42 minute mark)
OtherWise Christian lends itself a variety of options for focus. Watch Mx Chris with Dr Virginia Mollenkott or listen to Mx Chris on the Bible Bash podcast, for two very different examples.
