Congratulations to the United Church on its new resource, Celebrating Gender Diversity. This free kit is available for download here.
As the kit’s introduction reminds us, “Our ideas of what “normal” is, when it comes to gender, can limit our ability to celebrate the fullness of God’s diversity. So this kit supports the church’s intercultural vision of honouring differences. Learning new ways of language and of building community can have an incredible impact on the safety and spiritual well-being of trans people within communities of faith.
We hope that this resource will speak to people in all ministries of the church—whether you are a leader in a local worship or social justice committee, a ministry engaged in the Affirming Ministries Program, a camp board looking for practical tools to make camp more welcoming, or an individual seeking resources to support your own personal advocacy. “
This resource joins the array of other excellent titles available free of charge at http://www.united-church.ca/humanrights/gender#more
