Rockville United Church's LGBTQ Outreach Group meeting
Today my partner Julia McCrossin and I spoke at the monthly meeting of Rockville United Church’s Outreach Group, and it was a great experience. Among other things, the group is preparing to continue guiding the church through updating their Statement of Faith to include “gender identity and expression”.
We first connected with RUC last fall, when they became the excellent host of the 5th annual Montgomery County MD Transgender Day of Remembrance last November. We went on to spend most of Christmas Day at the lovely home of some RUC leaders, and attended RUC’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. / Justice / LGBTQ Sunday on January 17th -- the guest speaker was Rev. Allyson Dylan Robinson, and the focus was on trans issues.
RUC is truly committed to moving forward with internal and external LGBTQ+ work, and we are looking forward to staying connected with them.
