As far as engagements open to the public, we are beginning the year Affirming Gender locally. My own Faith Church will be hosting a seminar later this month. So if you are somewhere near southern Lancaster County, come join the fun!
Date: February 24-25 (Friday night-Saturday morning)
Place: Faith Reformed Presbyterian Church –611 Robert Fulton Highway, Quarryville. (It’s not actually a highway…in fact, it is really just Church Street, but it makes us feel bigger to call it a highway).
Here’s a link to a flyer with more information. We want to do this as a gift to our community so it will only be $5/person to cover food. Pastor Brett Rush will be doing music for it and each of the three sessions will include a Q&A time.
**In a few weeks, all subscribers to AffirmingGender.com will be receiving by email a free pass to this Quarryville event. We’d like to honor your expression of interest in the important matters of gender that you showed in joining the site. Thanks! With the free pass we want to especially welcome your participation in the seminar. **
But if you are in the real south, rather than just the southern end, look for a Gender conference at Peace Church in Cary, North Carolina (outside of Rawleigh) on the last day of September. This is another event open to the public. Rosaria Butterfield and I will be taking the stage to affirm gender together. We will keep you updated with more information.
See? There really are some places left to gather together to learn how to celebrate the gift!
