Christianity at the Crossroads
Navigating the Fault Lines of Gender

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 | 6 p.m.
Pope Auditorium | Lowenstein Center | Lincoln Center Campus
Fordham University | New York City

This event is sponsored by the Fordham Center on Religion and Culture.

On the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, many Christians remain divided on issues surrounding gender and sex. Women’s roles, sexuality, and gender fluidity continue to spark profound polarization, which could lead to irreparable rifts within churches.

Can Christian theological and ethical traditions lead to greater understanding on these issues, and can they help us transform these challenges into sources of greater unity among Christians?
