Reports to the Annual Gathering
Inspiring Storytellers and Other Presenters
The Ohio Conference Annual Gathering featured many “inspiring stories” including this one from Joni Christian, a member and licensed minister from the Church at Silver Lake. She told the story of living through extreme discrimination as a transgendered woman in the 1970s, transforming that experience into a faith-filled life with meaningful work and ministry, loving family and church home.
