What's God Got to Do With It?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join us as religious leaders share their views and listen to yours about God’s love and the balance between challenges and acceptance of gender-expansive young people in congregations and communities of faith. We will begin and end with a panel discussion. In the middle, we will break into sharing groups, with a faith leader facilitating each group, so a maximum number of people get a chance to share. Does supporting one’s gender-expansive child mean compromising one’s faith or spiritual path? Can families reconcile their desire to recognize a young person’s authenticity with what may feel like an unsympathetic or even hostile faith community? How might caregivers approach the religious leaders in their lives to seek support or to gain perspectives about their child’s upbringing? Join spiritual leaders, parents and caregivers as they explore balancing the desire to access the tremendous support and healing power of one’s faith with the evolving gender of one’s child or teen.
