The Christian Expression of Gender

There is an Orthodox understanding of personhood that mankind was created male or female. Today society and science says that we were created male and/or female, it’s our choice. Listen as our guest host Fr. Gregory Joyce speaks with Dr. Timothy Patitsas, Assistant Professor of Christian Ethics at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. The conversation clears up some of the distortions modern man has placed upon the way we understand gender and sexuality.

But first, we have Steve Butler, an ASCAP award-winning composer who teaches at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California. Listen as he speaks with Fr. Chris about his music and his discovery of Orthodoxy.

The book, Unprotected: A Campus Psychiatrist Reveals How Political Correctness in Her Profession Endangers Every Student  was mentioned by Dr. Timothy and is available in our OCN Amazon Bookstore.
