You will recognize me by my fruits

januar 31, 2011


Jesus tells us how to recognize his followers by their fruits. I use this as a test for my own life. What fruits come from me? Through my poems (two published books so far) I hear that people get a feeling of deeper understanding for transgendered people, themselves and the injustice in the binary gendered […]

Community on a Sunday

januar 30, 2011


For several weeks, since I started the series about the Quaker testimonies, I have wanted and feared to write about community (a separate testimony with the Norwegian Friends).

juni 19, 2008


Ryan is interested in the monstousness of trans bodies. He quotes Susan Stryker: The transsexual body is an unnatural body. It is the product of medical science. It is a technological construction.

Peace as the source of joy

april 30, 2008


This started as a comment to Susannes post «My joy is in God», but obviously had more to do in my own blog, so I’ll continue writing here. Thanks for the inspiration, Susanne! I find it easy to relate to the anger as a source of energy to make the world a better place. I […]

God makes no mistakes – kind of a sermon

mars 30, 2008


This was originally posted on my regular english blog. You’ll find it here, along with two very good comments. I usually avoid reading stuff that I know I’ll find repulsive, sick and frightening. I don’t think that’s unusual for any person. To make this post I felt forced to do some research. I started out […]
