Understanding Transgender

Download talk

In 2015, Caitlyn Jenner was named Woman of the Year, paving the way for the transgender movement to find a voice. Since then, gender non-conformity has become one of the defining issues of our age.

But what is transgender and how might we respond to this transgender moment as Christians, in love and wisdom?

In this talk, Daniel unpacks terms like gender dysphoria, transitioning, and gender nonconformity. He explains why we need to respond with love and kindness to transgender people. He raises questions about aspects of trans culture and the need to balance love with truth.

What Is Gender?

Download talk

Men like cars and are good at reading maps. Women are domestic and enjoy cooking. Really? In our culture, there are competing visions for what it means to be a man and a woman. Some are helpful, but many are not.

In this talk, Daniel outlines the biblical vision for male and female. He challenges unhelpful gender stereotypes and offers a way forward to become whole-hearted as men and women in a confused culture.

Note: this sermon was re-recorded because of technical errors when recording the original talk.
