Issue 37

January - February 2020

Popular media attempts to convince us that an attractive woman is one who puts her body on show, and a confident woman is one who embraces her sexuality and expresses it freely. We are told that sex is cheap, yet everywhere we look, we see that a liberal approach to sexuality offers brokenness.

In this issue of Kallos, we explore the theme of love and sexuality, the many myths that we may have believed in, and how in our sexual brokenness, God offers hope and restoration. We hear brave stories from Sarah Cheng-De Winne on being pregnant at 18, Jaime Wong on being in love with a girl and Noelle Wee on being molested by her uncles.

The True Cost Of Cashew Nuts

Some nuts grow like fruits on trees, and some like potatoes, under the ground. Cashew nuts, however, are a little different. Obtaining the popular nut is not as simple as picking a fruit off a tree — it comes at a dear cost for workers in India and Vietnam.
