Recovering Our Creative Calling
email this item to a friend
How can Christians be agents of cultural renewal? How can we move from being merely consumers or critics of culture to creators of it? This interactive workshop will help Christian leaders rethink their posture toward the world around them—not just the culture of their society, but the culture of their own neighborhoods and churches—and learn to live transformational lives in that world. What role will you play in the flourishing of your local culture?
