Film: Gender Identity: Thy Will be Done

October 14, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


A transsexual woman’s journey through family and faith

This eye-opening film Thy Will Be Done follows the journey of Male-to-Female Transsexual Sara Herwig in her transition and her journey to Ordination in the Presbyterian Church.  This documentary explores the way in which lifestyles and gender identity paths have the power to tear a family completely to pieces, only to bind it back again, more closely but differently.  The Church’s conservative groups do not recognize Sara as female, and challenge her fitness and eligibility to be a pastor.  It’s crucial that Sara has the support of family and friends.  Thy Will Be Done highlights that point of tension where gender, family relationships, and faith intersect. Very relevant to Question 3 protections of gender ID on November 6 ballot.  

Run time: 55 minutes, followed by discussion with Sara Herwig and filmmaker Alice Bouvrie.
