Ep. 149 : Beyond Awkward Side-Hugs: Healthy Gender Relationships in a Sex-Crazed World with Bronwyn Lea

The relationship between men and women in the church has some history, to say the least. Do you find yourself wondering why it's so much more complicated than it needs to be? Especially as we labor together in the workspace. Questions rise around stereotypes and gender roles, marriage and singleness.
