Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Naming Rite for Asher, a lovely transgendered member of HFASS:

Comments

"Pr. Nadia: Bear this name in the Name of Christ. Share it in the name of Mercy. Offer it in the name of Justice." - tears in my eyes.

Love it! My son's name is Asher and my best friend from seminary is a transwoman. This was very meaningful to read. In the struggle for rights and justice for LGBTQ people it seems like we're so often forced to spend lots of energy combatting and overcoming the negative. This is such a beautiful example of fighting the struggle through affirmation and positive moments. Thanks again for sharing this.

This is so lovely. I hope people with transgendered friends will be able to use it to affirm their God-given identities.

Beautiful! God bless you Asher!

Thanks for posting it. It is beautiful.

lovely. very meaningful. simple and deep.

That is beautiful. A tender loving response from part of the Body of Christ in stark contrast to the usual knee-jerk reaction that most of it gives.

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

I'm sorry, this is not about your post. I was given a copy of your book, Salvation on the Small Screen, by a member of my church who attended the conference in Dallas. I cannot put this book down. I need to go to work but can't stop reading and laughing. I know there are many serious issues to be explored and I applaud your doing so. But I have tears I am laughing so hard. It feels really good to laugh till you cry.

Wow-- that made me cry. What a wonderful way for the community to embrace a person's transition and make them feel welcome and understood.
