H. Adam Ackley speaks in the Rector’s Forum at ASC on November 24, 2013.
“Transgender and Christian”: a theological understanding celebrating transgender identity woven with the personal faith testimony of Dr. H Adam Ackley, who is both an ordained minister and a theologian. Until recently a full professor of theology in the Department of Philosophy and Theology at Azusa Pacific University, Dr. Ackley is an ordained minister in the Church of the Brethren. Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to learn from an inspiring teacher and courageous witness to God’s inclusive love.
This Sunday, we will be writing to our members in the House of Representatives asking them to work for passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) – already passed by the Senate. ENDA would provide basic protections against workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
If you’d like to take further action online, please use this online petition to urge House Speaker Boehner to call a vote on ENDA.
Now that Congress is back in session, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is poised to move to the Senate floor this fall. I hope you’ll join us in mobilizing an outpouring of support for this common-sense, national workplace protection law for our LGBT community.
