Hawks & Hornets (pt. 1)

February 15th, 2022

This is an episode about sexuality and the teenage years.  Obviously, there is a lot going on during the teens years and sexuality has always been a part of that.  Susan and John talk about what is the same and what is different while ministering and loving teens as they wrestle with their sexuality in today's culture.  

 

This is a two parter.  In the process of planning this episode, we decided to make it into two episodes.  Part 1 is all about foundational understanding.  Part 2 is about what we do with that information.
