Rev. Dr. Erin Swenson Preaches on Transgender Day of Remembrance

November 20, 2017  |  All Are Welcome!  |  Stewart Chapel 12:05pm

In partnership with the Center for Innovation in Ministry, and the Jane Adams Spahr Reconciliation Project, SFTS welcomes guest preacher Rev. Dr. Erin Swenson to the pulpit on Monday, November 20th, for a special celebration of the Transgender Day of Remembrance.

A licensed psychotherapist of over 40 years, Erin Swenson has specialized in the area of transgender experience, working with hundreds of individuals, couples, and families.

As a Presbyterian minister, she has served as a pastor, counselor, educator, and administrator within a variety of faith communities, including Adjunct Professor of Pastoral Care at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology.

As a transgender woman, she confronted the Presbyterian Church with her own transgender reality. Ultimately, she became the first-known mainstream Protestant minister to make a gender transition and retain ordained office, an event that was covered by USA Today and Newsweek.

Service begins at 12:05pm at Stewart Chapel in Geneva Hall, located at 105 Seminary Road, San Anselmo, CA (map). All are welcome!
