Christ and Culture
Teachers: Michael Gibbons and Ben Kirkpatrick
Location: Room 104
This class will be centered around Dan Strange’s Plugged In with discussion around our place in culture and its place in our lives, whether it’s what we watch, read, play, or listen to. Is it possible to serve your faith with these things and not starve it? Plugged In seeks to serve your faith by helping you to engage the culture around you in a gracious, truthful, and thoughtful way. This class is an informal sequel to the Honest Evangelism class as our aim is that of the book’s—to give you the confidence to speak and think about culture in a way that points to a bigger and better reality: the story of King Jesus and his cosmic redemption.
