A great book that almost nobody will read is, “Exclusion and Embrace, Revised and Updated: A Theological Exploration of Identity, Otherness, and Reconciliation,” by Miroslav Volf. He said, “Let us cast out exclusion and embrace those who do not fall within our narrowing circle of comfort.”
Another book that all ministers should read is, “Is Your Church Too Comfortable,” by Mark Buchanan. He doesn’t address transgenderism, but there’s a chapter on a lesbian couple who wanted to join his conservative church. He said to them that there’s so many liberal churches to choose from, why his? They said it was the kind of church they grew up in. I won’t give you anymore details, but it does have a positive outcome.
