This conference of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America will feature ELCA Pastor Asher O'Callaghan. This is a woman who presents herself as a man and is the first transgender person to be ordained through the regular ELCA ordination process.
It is tragic to see the ELCA elevate sexual confusion to this level.
In Jesus our Savior,
Pastor Tom Brock
Here is how the ELCA conference describes her:
Before becoming a Lutheran pastor, Asher fancied himself spiritual but not religious. He thought he was done with organized religion after growing up transgender and bisexual in a fundamentalist church. But then he stumbled into a church called House For All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado where God messed up all his plans. There he heard an invitation he couldn’t help but share. From Christ’s open table he heard: “Behold who you are. Become what you receive.” Becoming what he’s received has led him to earn a Master of Divinity from Luther Seminary, to pastor a small mountain congregation called Zion Lutheran Church in Idaho Springs, Colorado and now to serve as Program Director of Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries.
