I don’t know much about transgender issues, but I’m trying to learn. … With the help of a pediatrician friend and a geneticist friend, I’m listening and trying to learn. This is hard, though, because understanding the transgender experience seems so far outside what I have ever contemplated. And the more I learn, the more theological questions I face as well. This is hard, even for a pastor.
