On Cultural Engagement

Given our recent discussion on church and culture, I was jazzed to see that soon-to-be-father-of-three Joe Thorn has written a nice piece on cultural engagement.  Before he lays out six rules, Joe provides a helpful cultural framework that addresses the aspects of culture that are broken (to be redeemed), evil (to be rejected), and good (to be accepted). Joe’s six rules of cultural engagement then follows:

1. Be present.
2. Practice discernment.
3. Develop your theology.
4. Find courage.
5. Speak clearly.
6. Love.

Good stuff. Be sure to read the whole article.
