We are told that our gender is fluid. How true is this? What is the reality and purpose of our bodies? Is there any truth to "fluidity"? What does any of this have to do with God? Angela Franks will present a theology of the gendered body and discuss the truth and the limits of the idea of "fluidity."
There will be an opportunity for live Q&A with Dr. Franks and other panelists from Saint John's Seminary.
