What is our place among cultures of power?
How should the church relate to culture? What is ‘culture’ for that matter? And is power a bad thing? Dave and Geoff talk about different ways of thinking about church and culture(s), from H. Richard Niebuhr’s influential Christ and Culture to James Davison Hunter’s To Change the World, and why this matters to the local church.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/221856635″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
Big Idea: If the church hasn’t learned how to hold power within the church, then it shouldn’t be trusted with power outside in culture.
