"Restoring Our Focus: Have We Lost the Culture, What Do we Do Now?"
October 9-10thNOTE Change: Holiday Inn Gallatin Rm - please check back for changes. (Topics and lectures below)
Have we lost the culture? A lot of Christians look around and feel hopeless... what do we do now? With the recent Supreme Court decision on same sex marriage, Stonestreet's visit could not be timelier - he is a great one to have coming to speak into this issue. See the program topics below from "what do we do now to same-sex marriage, sexual orientation, gender-identity, and the Image of God," John will help us to unravel the confusion.
When the Church Was Distracted
Sometimes, the best thing that can happen to a good football team that has not been practicing well is a good old fashioned licken. If they are for real, they will repent, prepare well, and come out fighting in the next game. In 1973, we got Roe vs. Wade largely because we had been sleeping. June 26th, 2015 we got same-sex marriage because we had not engaged well in the conversation.
It's Time - for us to get equipped, and get back in the game.
In God's good timing, we are blessed to have an opportunity to hear a man who travels all over the country and interacts with the best and the brightest when it comes to these issues and what do we do now?
Has God Left the Building?
Or is He still powerfully and actively engaged? Does the Enemy have God in a "Check Mate" position in this game of chess? The ideas that shape politics and culture are rarely advanced by arguments, but by stories. We have real-life stories to tell - stories with TRUTH imbedded in them and John will help us understand how to tell our stories more effectively.
