What hope does Christianity offer transgender people? What’s the cure to toxic masculinity? How can we teach our children about a Christian view of work? Is marriage the best way to grow spiritually? And what do burgers Blockbuster have in common?
Get thoughtful responses to these questions from Sam Allbery, Liberty McArtor, Amy Sherman, Ashley Gorman and Hal Koss in today’s #FaithandCulture Roundup.
