This special episode of the Empowered Homes Podcast is a recorded session from The Empowered Homes Conference 2023: Sexuality, Gender, Identity and the Gospel.

Pastor Ed Newton from Community Bible Church in San Antonio, Texas, kicks off the conference with a powerful message. About the Session: The Bible is more than a book that spotlights sin, it is the journal of God’s heart that spotlights a Savior who came to take away sin. In this session, Pastor Ed looks at the Construct, Crisis, Considerations, and Clarity of Sexuality and Gender.
