Today we’re sharing some excellent news!
Calvary Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. reaffirmed the ordination of Allyson Dylan Robinson, a transgender woman, on June 15, 2014. Allyson was previously ordained in the denomination before transitioning to female.
“Calvary’s affirmation of my ordination is certainly very meaningful to my family and me,” Robinson said in an email July 9. “Prior to my ‘coming out,’ we lamented that soon we would never be welcome in a church of our tradition again. To our great joy the Calvary family proved us wrong, just as it has so many others who have felt similar fears.”
