Summer Services are held every Sunday all summer (July and August) at 10 am in our air-conditioned Chapel. Enter through the garden door by the labyrinth. Child care is available this year!
Join us for lemonade, cookies, fruit, and conversation afterward. Socialize in the Chapel, or stroll through the gardens.
July 22: One Person’s Trans Journey
Leading: Micah Weir
Lemonade Hour: in the garden, weather permitting
14% of the US population knows someone who is transgender.” Reading that statistic made Micah realize that visibility and education will be critical to achieving basic human rights and protections for the trans community, just as it was for the LGBQ community. Come listen to one person’s experience of discovering, embracing, and moving forward through their own journey to finally living their truth, as well as hearing why they feel the responsibility to live an open and transparent life to help advocate for those who cannot.
Dr. Micah Weir is many things. A parent, a North Parish Choir member, an interventional radiologist, a Native American, a black belt, sometimes a runner, and, oh, yeah, transgender. They are Two Spirit and identify best with the term “transmasculine nonbinary”. They have been increasing awareness through speaking to college classes, arranging education and training for the LGH Radiology and Laboratory departments, and recording videos throughout transition that have been used for high school classes and in clergy training.
Volunteers are needed to host Sunday morning fellowship hours and usher. Click here to sign up.
