Building Bridges Through Culture
In this session by Parker LaGrange, he discusses the theme of Jesus as a bridge builder who aimed to connect mankind back to God despite barriers and differences. He emphasizes the importance of understanding and utilizing the different cultures we encounter, specifically addressing the challenges and opportunities presented by American culture's secularism. Parker also references the growing number of religious "nuns" in society, individuals who don't identify with any religious background, and encourages the audience to be proactive in building bridges and turning trends in favor of Christianity. Finally, he examines Acts chapter 17, where Paul delivers a sermon in Athens, as a model for engaging with culture and building bridges.
