US Supreme Court vacates 4th Circuit Court’s ruling in favor of transgender teen

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals had ruled in favor of Gavin Grimm, the 17-year-old female-to-male transgender teen who took on his local school district when they refused to allow him to use the boys’ restrooms and locker facilities at his high school. The 4th Circuit ruled in Gavin’s favor based on the Title IX guidelines issued by the Obama Administration. Monday, the US Supreme Court has vacated the earlier decision in GG vs Gloucester County School District and returned the case to the 4th Circuit Court for reconsideration.

Speaking to the Soul: How’s your Lent going?

Speaking to the Soul: How’s your Lent going?

It’s my prayer that throughout Lent and in the coming months we can acknowledge the challenges and the callings of following Jesus. That we can see the brokenness in our world and respond. That we can rejoice together in our joys. That we can together sing that it is indeed a wonderful world.
