So THIS is how the spirit works. Today is part of the National Weekend of Prayer for Transgender Justice where we prayed specifically for justice and dignity for #transgender and gender-expansive people. (Thank you Bishop and Terry.) And who but GLIDE member Achilles Kenyon (& future Pacific School of Religion student!!) would be here to boldly give the powerful testimony of his journey to his own truth. Bless you Blaze!!

For anyone who could not join us for our Interfaith Service for Transgender Justice, you can get a taste of the experience here. As Rabbi Karen Landy said when lighting the Havdallah candle, "the most interesting and colorful communities create the strongest light." #TransJustice
