As Christians, we spend most of our lives around people who don’t share our faith. How can we reflect Jesus in every area of our public and private lives? Or should we only manifest our beliefs in private and remain agnostic in public?
In this first podcast of a two-part series discussing cultural engagement, we will discuss how Christians can live out their spiritual lives within our broader culture profoundly affected by secularization. Christians regularly interact in seven cultural streams. These include family, church, workplace, community, government, education, and the arts.
