On Outreach

I’m spending part of my afternoon reading Inside the Organic Church for my class.  In the chapter detailing a church called “The Bridge” located in Arizona, Whitesel writes, “The cultural mandate must be carefully studied and replicated, not only because of its strategic importance, but also because evangelicals lack proficiency” (39).

Translation: It is not only important that we study our culture because we need to understand those whom we minister to, but also, because we are ignorant of said culture.

And Christians thought that they had all the answers.
