Coat of Many Names needs your name!

Lindsay Louise Biddle is a Presbyterian minister living in Scotland. She pastored More Light Churches in the US, and is the author of a biblical self-defense course that can be found on the More Light Presbyterians website resources page (archived, but it’s there: She’s forwarded the following request, and YOU (or someone you know) might want to participate!

Dear More Light friends,

I Lindsay Biddle have been appointed as the PC(USA) delegate to this year’s General Assembly meeting of the Church of Scotland, which is expected to act upon “ordained ministry and same-sex relationships.” As an ecumenical delegate, I am encouraged to wear my “national costume” and so I plan to wear a Coat With Names of Ordained Transgender, Bisexual, Lesbian, Gay Presbyterians

  • Email me your name (however you want it to appear) and I will affix it:
  • Add your partner’s name (however they want it to appear) and I will put you together in the X-shape of Scotland’s patron Saint Andrew.
  • Deadline: May 15

Then when people ask I can respond, “These are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered Presbyterians who are ordained deacons, elders, or ministers.”

And I’ll stay warm and dry!
