Pastor Amy Epp
God's call and covenant for us goes beyond gender and yet is profoundly rooted in identity and naming.
Show Notes
Pastor Amy tells anew the story of a queerly named God who gives new names and new identities to Abram and Sarai and calls them into new identities in ways they cannot comprehend. Like them we are called to understand that our bodies and biology do not determine the path and promise God has for us. As a welcoming and affirming church, can we think anew of how our queer kindred receive as a gift the blessing of church community affirming names, pronouns and gender even when biology might say something different?
