How do we follow Christ in a post-Christendom context? And when public faith is suspect, what does it take to shape our bit of God’s world toward shalom?
We often say ‘be in the world but not of the world’ or ‘like the men of Issachar, read the signs of the times’. But what does this mean practically for my local street and the places I work and play? We need fresh vision to move past the platitudes and embrace God’s mission in a godly way. Neither taking over nor retreating, what does it look like to truly bless and love my neighbours?
We often look at the whole landscape of society when we think about shaping culture – the heights of fame, the highest levels of politics, the pinnacles of business achievement. But in order to wisely traverse the cultural peaks, we first need to map our own day-to-day frontline’s tricky contours and chart a path following in Christ’s footsteps. We need new words and new ways to reach our particular time and place.
This experimental forum will guide you there. Provocative stories, holistic theology, practical wisdom, a community journeying together through better conversation – this is a safe place to wrestle and test a hunch or three.
Join us, Monday 8 March, 7–9pm for this stimulating event, LICC’s first Wisdom Lab.
