Connecting with Culture
Our blog reflecting on weekly news, trends, innovation, and the arts...
Far from being magnetic and appealing to society today, Christianity and the Christian church seem de-magnetised – an irrelevant, and even repellent presence. Why is this the case, and what does it mean for our lives and witness as followers of Jesus?
In this year’s John Stott London Lecture, Dan Strange explores the ‘magnetic points’ common to human beings – the links between the longings and desires of our culture and the person of Jesus, showing how we can share Jesus in ways that engage our friends and colleagues with his life-changing and world-shaping magnetic power.
Dr Dan Strange is College Director at Oak Hill College in London, and author of Plugged In: Connecting your faith with what you watch, read, and play.
The John Stott London Lecture is organised by representatives of @All Souls Langham Place, A Rocha, Langham Partnership, and the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity.
