On Transgender Day of Remembrance, we will be met with a unique opportunity to engage memories of love and challenges within the life of transgender people. Artist and minister, Rev. Jé Exodus Hooper, PhD (they/them) will offer us a choreosermon entitled: Trans-substantiation: A Trans Sacred Communion.
This choreosermon is a performance ritual that holds the tension between the sacred love and the profane violence that impacts Transgender folks. Join us as we usher in a formation of truth, reconciliation and healing for both our community and our transgender community. The ritual is approximately 30 mins with an additional 20 mins of talk-back with Jé.
Content Warning: This performance is for spiritually- and socially-mature audiences, and requires self-care and pastoral attention. During the ritual we ask that folks take care of themselves in ways that are meaningful and healthy– and Jé and other minister(s) are available for further congregational care. This will NOT be a typical UCH service. Children and youth will begin their morning in the classrooms.
You can also livestream the service at YouTube.com/UCHBG. To subscribe to our email list, click on News in the menu bar above and complete the form at the bottom of the page. For more information about our services and what to expect – click here.
The requirement of masks is based on the current COVID community risk level in Dauphin County. Masks are required for medium or high risk levels; they are optional when the county is in the low risk level. The current level will be posted on the front doors of the church.
