Hey there, I’m Avery (they/them), and this is where I’ll be compiling the liturgy and worship materials I’ve written over the years. That includes poems that I’ve written – if you want to use one of those in your own worship service, contact me!
My liturgy is LGBTQA+/queer affirming and frequently borrows from various branches of liberation theology; it also employs inclusive language for people and expansive language for God. That means that I include nonbinary persons in my language (e.g. no use of “brothers and sisters” without also including “siblings”), and often acknowledge the communities-within-our-communities that are most marginalized, from BIPOC to disabled persons. It also means that I like to spice up what pronouns and imagery I use for God!
Please let me know if you find anything in my writing here that fails to live up to those goals of affirmation, inclusiveness, and expansion. And if there’s anything I need to be doing to make this site more accessible, let me know that too! I am eager to learn and fix my mistakes.
For more about me and how to contact me, see my about page. For more of my stuff, including my multifaith podcast of transgender stories, my TransChristianity timeline, and my disability theology stuff, visit Blessedarethebinarybreakers.com.
