Living in the Tension Gathering – Wed. Feb. 8th

For our next Living in the Tension gathering on Wednesday, February 8th, we will be watching the documentary Call Me Malcolm. The documentary follows Malcolm Himschoot, a transgender man now ordained in the United Church of Christ, as he is finishing his final year of seminary after he began the process of transitioning a few years prior. Along with sharing some of his story, Malcolm travels across the U.S. visiting people with various perspectives about identity and faith. We will be gathering at our normal spot on 5255 N. Ashland Ave. in Room 120 at 7pm. We will be starting the documentary at 7pm since it is 90 minutes, so I would encourage you to arrive a few minutes early if possible. You can check out the trailer for the documentary below:

We hope to see you there.

Much love.
