Now that we know more about LGBTQI2A people, how can we be better neighbors, coworkers, and friends? In this session we’ll be going over interpersonal and institutional actions we can take to make our communities places of abundant life for everyone.
Austen Hartke is the author of “Transforming: The Bible and the Lives of Transgender Christians,” published by Westminster John Knox Press in 2018. He is also the founder and director of Transmission Ministry Collective, an online community dedicated to the spiritual care, faith formation, and leadership potential of transgender and gender-expansive Christians. He is a graduate of Luther Seminary’s Master of Arts program in Old Testament/Hebrew Bible Studies, and is the winner of the 2014 John Milton Prize in Old Testament Writing from the same institution.
