03 Practice: Journaling Our Identity with Dr. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza
Join us for a simple but profound journaling practice with Dr. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza. Grab a notebook or something to write on, your favorite writing implement, and get ready to be led through some reflection on your identity. Inspired by Thomas Aquinas, Robyn puts their own spin on a classic question: “Who am I, and how do I know?”
Check out episode 3 for the corresponding conversation with Dr. Robyn Henderson-Espinoza titled "Healing at the Borderlands: Honoring Trans Day of Remembrance” to listen in to their wisdom on how to be human with one another, activist theology, the politics of radical difference, and loving Trans folks well.

ABOUT DR. ROBYN HENDERSON-ESPINOZA
Knowing intimately that the borderlands are a place of learning and growth, Robyn draws on their identity and heritage as a Trans queer Latinx in everything that they do. From doubt to divine and everywhere in between, their call as an activist-theologian demands the vision to disrupt hegemony and colonialist structures of multi-layered oppressions. As an anti-oppression, anti-racist, non-binary Trans*gressive Latinx, Robyn takes seriously their call as an activist theologian and ethicist to bridge together theories and practices that result in communities responding to pressing social concerns. Robyn sees this work as a life-orienting vocation, deeply committed to translating theory to practice, and embedded in re-imagining our moral horizon to one which privileges a politics of radical difference. They currently serve as Director of Public Theology Initiatives at Faith Matters Network in Nashville, TN. Find them on their website, on Twitter as @irobyn, and on their Facebook page.
On November 19, 2017, Robyn will join the 9:30 and 11:45am worship services at Middle Collegiate Church in NYC as part of the celebration of Trans Awareness Week. They will preach a sermon called “And God Hovered Over the Face of the Deep: Transgressing Gender.” Join us there if you’re in NYC, and catch the livestream if you’re elsewhere. More info here.
