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.

Is this the 2018 national conference in Texas he's referring to? That's scary.

I believe this is a 2017 conference in Louisville.

Here's a thought June, explain to them what God says in the Bible. What God wants from us and why we are to put HIM first not our own desires. Explain that we can be forgiven and accepted by Jesus shed blood if we accept HIM and ''go and sin no more''. Maybe a good idea to also touch on what happens to those who choose not to accept Jesus as Lord..we will all die and death is not the end.
