Hi everyone! My name is Marcie and I’m a new member. I began my journey about 3 years ago, and it was a late start. By that I mean it took me a long time to realize I needed to become the real me, as opposed to who I was pretending to be. There are reasons for the late start–24 years in the army, a civil service job (both required security clearances) and a couple of kids that I was raising as a mostly single parent. The important thing isn’t that it took me a while to figur4e things out, but that I am here now.

Glad you could join us! I hope that you have a good experience here.
Interesting that you mentioned PCUSA. I grew up in the Presbyterian Church and held church offices in 2 of the 4 cities where I have lived (Toledo, OH and Corning, NY). However, I have been unchurched for about 20 years. At the time I was unhappy with the treatment of LGBT people. It was a patchwork as some were More Light, but most were not. That had no effect on my beliefs, but I haven’t been compelled to find a church where I now live.
Just out of curiosity, have you had any difficulty in reconciling faith and gender identity? I’m asking because some here have had a lot of difficulty with this.
