Troy is a member of Thruway Christians. On his blog today, he writes of his experience watching the TC’s interact with a transgendered member of the group, and of his own deep questions about the whole transgender phenomenon. (“The idea that God would make a mistake and create a soul to reside in the wrong body… God does not make mistak…es!”) It’s the kind of open, honest inquiry that I think stands as a reason for us all to have real hope that one day “Christian” will be synonymous with nothing but “loving.”
