Him and Her
“God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” – Genesis 1:27
We live in a unique time in history in which the topic of identity and gender is a lightning rod for fierce discussion and debate.
Never before have we carried such passionate thoughts and opinions about what it means to be a man or woman. Never before have those views been so diverse and our comments so divisive.
In the midst of this climate it is hard to see what is right, know what is true and celebrate what is beautiful.
We feel the weight of this cultural moment and the complexity that is before us, and yet are committed to journeying together to explore God’s word and seek His vision.
‘Him and Her’ will perhaps be the most controversial and ambitious teaching series in the history of City on a Hill. Starting in the garden of Eden and ending in the new creation, we will explore what it means to be a man and woman, whether gender is static or fluid, how we think about same-sex attraction as well as the biblical vision for dating, marriage, sex, and singleness.
We do this with a deep longing for truth and a firm conviction that God’s design for humanity is beautiful. And that knowing who we are before Him, is not only good and right, but vital for the relationships we were made to know and enjoy.
