Methodist Church in Great Britain welcomes a new first: a transgender minister

Sunday, November 19, 2017 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , , , ,

(Worthy News) - The Methodist Church in Great Britain has its first transgender minister.

Joy Everingham, a chaplain at the University of Kent Canterbury, has two sons and a wife named Ruth. The 46-year-old minister also is undergoing a transitioning process that involves hormone therapy and wearing women’s clothing full-time — all approved by church leaders.

“People sat down and started reading [my letter on transition], and then I could see them looking up and around,” the minister said, Kent Online reported Friday. “I was scared to death, but people kept coming up to me and saying ‘well done.’ A couple of people didn’t speak to me for a bit, but they had to work it out for themselves. I was expecting it to be a long hard trek to justify who I was, but it’s not been like that.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

2 Thessalonians 2:3-5  Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction,  he who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself as God.  Don’t you remember that, when I was still with you, I told you these things?

Isaiah 5:20  Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
