A Heartfelt Welcome Letter From An Episcopal Bishop

Recommended Posts

Guest Robin Winter

:) Very nice. I love it when a religious leader offers new understanding of scripture instead of blindly teaching the interpretations of bigoted old men. Reminds me of the story of Joseph and his multicolored "robe", and how one pastor/priest believed the interpretation was wrong and it was actually a dress. Great story.

I missed a chance to meet Bishop Robinson at a special reception here in the Los Angeles area last night. I had been busy with another Trans* related activity. I had met him for the first time four years ago at this time of year. I was making my first appearance in public at an actual Church LGBT event regarding same gender marriage. I actually spent nearly half an hour talking with him, and received communion directly from his hands an hour later. I felt true and unconditional acceptance at the gathering where I was the only "T" in an LGB group that day. My own Bishops in my diocese also know me and accept me as well. Bishop Gene, as I have been asked to call him, is one of my heroes of our current day church. I am honored and Blessed to know him.

      Anna, I created this thread as a what is going on with your day kind of thread. To keep a light hearted atmosphere. We get people talking about their up coming day or the day they had. weather, Maple syrup, boats just about everything casual.   Fell free to join in.

      We have a naughty word filter that takes care of most obscenities. F bombs will earn you a rap on the knuckles with a ruler as will the common word for feces. It might be a good idea to double check what you have written before hitting the submit tab   MaryEllen

      am i allowed to swear on here? i dont swear alot, but sometimes it just comes naturally and i have to remove it or block it.

      I always shave mine, but they just go hairy again. Still an inconvenience to have to shave, but to me it is much better than the horrible black thick hairs everywhere. They're my main cause for dysphoria.

      hi, i keep having thoughts that i'm not trans, even though i know that i am. i think its influenced by some of my family and other people that i know, who try to deny it. is there any way to stop these thoughts and reassure myself?
    • AnnaD
      thats just ridiculous to be honest, i already hate schools stopping students from wearing certain clothes (unless theyre offensive) or having certain hair etc... but when they kick a student out just for something that they can't change, its too much.

      i'm only out to a few people so far, but when i'm eventually out fully, i see theres quite a lot for me to look forwards to. i know that it takes a lot of pressure off. 👍

      So a lot of threads here are about the challenges of coming out and the such. One thing in all the therapy I have done over and over, is that we should try and look for good things. Now, their are struggles, and the other posts serve functions in helping people understand what they are about to face, and how they might deal with it. But, I thought it would be cool if we had a list of things from people of all the things that make them smile, or have bouts of joy that can only occur because they are out! For me: -When someone calls me Mackenzie or she/her it makes me feel good.  -When I see a dress that looks wonderful, I get to say, "Yeah, I am going to buy that" instead of "Damn, I wish I could get that." -The look of my body when it is hairless, and I am wearing my feminine clothing, and I see a women in front of me in the mirror.   Those are just the tip of the ice burgs! Share yours, and lets couple the advice in this forum with some highlights and silver linings!

      this is actually [messed] up (not sure if swearing is allowed here so i've blocked it out)

      sorry this is quite a bit late, but yes, a nurse should understand. the nurses in my school are great, but i know some teachers who are just plain ignorant. at least your friend Will and your teacher is supportive, its good to have friends.

      you're basically going through another puberty, so you might feel a bit strange. a needle is still a small price to pay for your correct hormones 👍

      that's a nice poem, well done 👍

      I was exhausted after the movie Endtime I went to bed right away, actually sleeping til 5am. I couldn’t go back to sleep so I drove to a 24hr Mexican food drive through and bought a breakfast burrito, and drove to a drive thu Starbucks, 😂🚙🌯☕️.  Then the a/c technician called early, amazing, so I had to 🚙💨 over to my friends house to help. She doesn’t like to home alone with technicians, I don’t mind. That took a while. Then dropped an electric razor for my dad, then shopping for groceries, made it out of Costco with spending over $100, then finally back home to eat lunch.
