The Joy of Gender

Gender is a topic as complex as humans are, with there being so many gender expressions and experiences. Join us this Sunday as we look to transgender authors, poets, and ministers to celebrate the transformation that comes when with gender. Whether you are transgender, cisgender, or not sure about gender – join us to celebrate the transformation that comes with self-reflection and discovery! The JRUUC Sacred Breath Choir will be singing today, along with our Music Director Jennifer Hedstrom and a special guest.
