Park Avenue Christian Church responds to President Trump’s ban of transgender people in the military
The acts of this administration against our country’s transgender daughters, sons, and loved ones are abhorrent. Transgender people are fully made in the image of God and to treat them as anything less goes directly against the teachings of Jesus. We at Park Avenue Christian Church believe that when transgender people are valued and thriving we all flourish. We also understand that indifference towards the oppression of God’s beloved is to forsake the call of Christ’s overwhelming justice. We must name this hate as the sin it is and recommit ourselves to the work of teaching and living the radical gospel message of God’s love. We are uniquely created in God’s image specifically to embrace the divinity of diversity in our world. Holy one hear our prayer.
