Learning your child is transgender is overwhelming in many ways. You have to adjust to a new way of thinking and talking about your child. You may have a new name and set of pronouns to get used to. In addition to all that, there is the emotional turmoil that comes with the transition your child and your family are going through. While all of that is normal, what happens when your faith community believes that being transgender is a sin? How do you continue practicing in a faith community that doesn't support your child or your family?
The Navigating Church After Your Child Comes Out Mini-Course gives you the tools to sort out how to move forward in your faith community after your child comes out.
What you'll get:
- Help to navigate what the Bible says about transgender and LGBTQ+ people and what it doesn’t.
- Guidance to work through how to know when it’s time to find a new faith community and how to find a new one if that’s what you decide is right for you.
- A framework of expectations, understanding that everyone’s experiences are different, and help to set realistic boundaries around encounters with others.
By the time you have completed the course, you will understand the difference between open and affirming, and accepting, know what to do if you’re not ready to start over with a new faith community, and have a plan for when people use religion against your child.
This self-paced course contains three modules: What God Says and What the Bible Says, Open, Affirming, and Accepting: What’s the Difference? and What Do I Do About…?
Additionally, the purchase of the course comes with access to a private Community.
Navigating Church after your child comes out can be complicated and messy, but you don't have to go at it alone.
