Transgender Prayer

Posted on november 11, 2008


I recently read Transgendered – Theology, Ministry and Communities of Faith by Justin Tanis. It is a great book, and I hope to return with a proper review. For now, I just want to quote one prayer from the book:

Blesser of all things,
You created us in your likeness and in your image
And then you pronounced us good.
We give you thanks for the gift of life itself
And for our uniqueness.
God of transformations,
You set us free
To change and grow,
You hold us close
In love and grace.
We rejoice in our transgendered lives,
Different, strong, dynamic and loved.
