We are taking a short break from honoring our 2013 Grant Recipients in order to reflect on Transgender Day of Remembrance. Transgender Day of Remembrance is an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence.
Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries is committed to overcoming barriers created by gender conformity and supporting leaders of diverse gender identities and expressions.
In honor of Transgender Day of Remembrance we share worship resources for congregations, including different forms of Confession and Forgiveness and Prayers of the People. These materials were written by Rev. Jay Wilson. Read the full worship resources here.
