Moving on to the final post inspired by Nancy Pearcey’s new book Love Thy Body. Order your copy here. Pearcey insightfully writes about sexual identity issues, stating that “our bodies are created by God and are intended to give us clues about our sexual identity.” I would add that the same can be applied to gender … Continue reading Grace and Space
