This week in our Launch Team meetings we talked about how we’re going to use culture to connect with people who are far from God, and then try to take steps towards God together. We looked at how this is not a new methodology, but one we find in the Bible.
Paul talked about how he would become “all things to all men” becoming a “Jew to the Jews” and a “Greek to the Greeks” so that he could connect with people. We looked at a great example from him in Acts 17, when he speaks to people in Athens, and totally uses their culture to build a bridge to them. Jesus also did this, all the time.
Hope we can do a great job at this.
