Gender Dysphoria, Evangelicals and the Way of Grace | GOF82

Gender Dysphoria and Transgender People. Evangelicals have not done well in ministering to transgender persons and families. Stories of heartbreak, isolation, and fear regularly accompany testimonies of individuals with gender dysphoria. The institution best suited to help has often contributed to the problem. We Evangelicals can do a better job. We have the Gospel of Grace. But we haven’t learned how to apply it very well. To answer this challenge, I invited Bill Henson from Lead Them Home Ministries back on the show to discuss practical approaches pastors, church leaders, and families can take to love Transgender people and families.
