  • Third Sunday Conversation 11am @ Muncie Friends Church: A Quaker Meeting Refreshments at 10:30 in Goddard Hall, followed by discussion in the sanctuary, then dinner. 481 W. Adams Street,Muncie, IN

    Transgender man Brent Walsh will share his spiritual journey in dealing with his sexual identity during the Third Sunday Conversation series at 11 a.m. Sunday at Muncie Friends Church: A Quaker Meeting.

    Walsh was born female into a strict, religious home that held traditional Christian values concerning gender roles. But, from an early age, Walsh – then known as Brenda – knew he was different from his sisters, and soon learned that his Christianity would be challenged by questions about his sexuality.

    Walsh came out as a lesbian in youth, and transitioned to male at age 32, grappling with long-held beliefs that seemed to contradict his reality. He came to believe that being LGBTQ need not impede his relationship with the divine.

    Walsh earned a Master’s of Divinity degree at Earlham School of Religion in 2013 and currently works at Earlham. He is a guest speaker at faith institutions that want to better understand and support transgender people.

    Refreshments will be served at 10:30 a.m. during fellowship time in Goddard Hall. Walsh will speak and hold a question and answer session at 11 a.m. Guests are invited to stay for dinner in the downstairs dining hall following the discussion.

    Third Sunday Conversations are held the third Sunday of every month and feature discussions with marginalized groups to promote understanding, and are open to the public.

    Friends Church is located at 418 W. Adams St. Parking and entrance are on the north side of the building, on Jackson Street.
