    Faith In Parents #97 | The Transgender Debate and Gender Identity

    Faith In Parents #97 | The Transgender Debate and Gender Identity

    Our culture is busy talking about Gender identity. This episode is for families that feel ill equipped to tackle this topic and would prefer to avoid the conversation. We’d love to support you to step up so that your children can hear the better Christian story.

    Where this is a present reality in your family, church or community, you’re wondering, “How did we get here? What did we do wrong?” This episode will comfort and urge you to cling to God’s care.

    Whatever your family's experience, join in the conversation that encourages parents, reduces panic, builds confidence, offers helpful language and reminds us of the simple rock solid principles God gives.

    Andrew Bunt, shares his own childhood experience of being gender non conformist, feeling trapped in the wrong body and how his Christian faith offered him freedom. Andrew also works for Living Out.

    Julie Maxwell, a Community Paediatrician shares insight around the issues children are facing as they struggle with mental health and question their gender. Julie also works for Lovewise.

    Ed Drew, the Director of Faith in Kids grounds the conversation in how we would parent / care for younger primary, upper primary / secondary school children and their families facing these struggles.

    Faith in KIDS #83 We Will Be Like Jesus

    Faith in KIDS #83 We Will Be Like Jesus

    How was your summer? Jam swam in the sea and knew Ed would be proud. And took another unexpected dip... How many cats are there in Rome? How many capital cities can you get around in 24 hours? But there is amazing city, with a tree and a river that brings us all hope. We read about it in Revelation 22. It's very encouraging! Along with your emails. Drops us a line.

    When did you last need some serious encouragement? Life is hard and we need help. But we are not alone. We look at Acts 9 and why Ananias was terrified. Some more Armadillo Quadruplet names. And don't forget that you've always got to look out for the digestive juices.

    Faith in KIDS #81 I Am Loved & Forgiven

    Faith in KIDS #81 I Am Loved & Forgiven

    A story about whale vomit that doesn't involve Jonah? And listen in for the brain exploding story of two brothers; Reg & Richard. If it wasn't one of Jam's fun facts we would refuse to believe it could be true. But that's not even the most incredible story in the episode! That's because this is the one where Jesus tells us the story about two other brothers. Both got lost, in very different ways.

    Listen in because all of us, need to know the joy of coming home to our heavenly father, because with Jesus.... I am lost and forgiven.
