Transgender to Transformed – A Conversation with Laura Perry

Hear from Laura Perry, a woman who formerly identified as transgender. God used her mother’s love and prayers to call Laura back to Himself. Filled with raw, honest emotion, Laura’s story of transformation through Jesus Christ will relate to those who struggle with gender identity, those who have transitioned, parents and loved ones, and those in the church who want to reach them.

Dear Lina: Should Christians use pronouns?

The issue of gender pronouns has become controversial because some people in the transgender community want people who self-identify as transgendered to be called by their gender pronouns of choice. Thus, we are asked to refer to someone on the basis of their preferred pronouns. How are we to love God and love our neighbor in light of this particular issue? Should Christians use preferred pronouns?

Dear Lina: Is it possible to be pro women in a complementarian church structure?

When it comes to gender roles in the church, Christians tend to adhere to one of two main approaches: complementarian or egalitarian. My goal in today’s podcast is not to make any direct contribution to those conversations but simply to answer a question related to women in complementarian churches.
