Are gender issues a reality in your school? I recently went to a PD on this issue and have since read the book "Transgender" by Vaughan Roberts. This learning has helped to inform my thinking as a Christian in this complex area of gender and human sexuality. In our social media dominated world being mindful of our culture's worldview, a biblical response to these complex issues as well as the situation some families are in, is important. A standout quote in Roberts from Sam Allberry is this one;
Our culture says: Your psychology is your sexual identity - let your body be conformed to it.
The Bible says: Your body is your sexual identity - let your mind be conformed to it.
If you are struggling to get your head around the 70+ categories Facebook has for choosing your gender or what exactly the acronyms LGBTQI, SOGI, MTF and FTM means I can thoroughly recommend this book by Roberts.

"Meditations & Musings" is my humble attempt to share what I have found useful in ministry in an Australian Lutheran School setting. It contains chapels, devotions and other resources I have written, used and adapted in my K-12 school context. If you would like to also share your ideas, resources or start a conversation about mission and ministry in your church- school location, feel free to contact me.
