A series of three lectures by Dr Dan Strange (Crosslands) and James Mildred (CARE) exploring biblical, cultural engagement.
As Christian disciples – whether seasoned leaders or new believers – we need to be able to confront the pressing issues of today with gospel confidence, biblical insight and intellectual rigour. The prevailing culture can seem hostile, daunting or unassailable – or we may simply be tempted to withdraw from it. Yet we are called as believers to connect with culture in order to love the lost and engage them with the gospel of Christ.
In this series of three lectures, Dr Dan Strange from Crosslands and James Mildred from CARE will take us from getting ready, to base camp to setting out. This lecture series is likely to be valuable to any Christian wanting to think further about how to engage with our culture, but doesn’t assume any prior theological training or knowledge of the topic.
WHEN AND WHERE
Each lecture will be delivered twice, at lunchtime (12:45 - 2:00pm) and in the evening (7:45 - 9:00pm), to suit different work patterns and availability. These lectures will be on zoom and once you've registered, you'll be sent a zoom link.
Learning to engage effectively with culture is like orienteering or going on an epic climb. The hard work starts by getting ready, making sure you’re familiar with the biblical foundations. Then, there’s a lot to be said for allowing voices from the past to further equip us. With these foundations in place you’ll be in a much better position to get stuck in, engaging effectively and bringing glory to God.
