One day on the walk home from school my son’s 7-year-old buddy said, “Miss Mary — WHY do people call animals ‘creatures’? I just think that’s so rude. I think it’s mean to animals to call them creatures.” I wasn’t quite sure where this thought had come from.

But he was intense with his delivery and I had a sense that somehow this topic mattered.
Speaker: Dannah Gresh (founder, Grace Prep) Session: Two-ism and Sexuality I am concerned with our view of sexuality in the church. The problem Let’s begin with women.
