Lake Park Lutheran Church is hosting an evening with Marquette grad, author, theologian, and anthropologist Megan DeFranza to talk about a church response to ministering to and with the Intersex community.
BORN BOTH: Making Church Safe for those Born between Male and Female.
Friday, Sept 29th, from 7-9pm at Lake Park (2647 N. Stowell Ave). Come for a presentation by DeFranza which will include an excerpt from her documentary, and then conclude with conversation. Light reception afterward.
Last year, one our members at Lake Park shared with us their journey to understanding their personal identity as an intersex person, and their place in church and society. That member, Dawn Mark, then had the dream to bring Megan to Milwaukee to talk about the Intersex community and the church. This event is the fulfillment of that dream. Dawn Mark will be present at the event, to welcome everyone and introduce the evening.
I do hope you will make it. It is sure to be a great evening of good conversation and learning for the faith-community.
