On April 27-28, 2018, Lead U Discipleship hosted its second conference in our Lead U Conference Series. The conference, “For the Life of the World: Christianity and Cultural Engagement,” aimed to explore the way in which the universal Church, local churches, and individual Christians should engage the culture with the gospel. We hoped to provide helpful biblical, theological, and historical insight into the problem and potential solutions.
About the Session:
In Session #6 of the conference, “For the Life of the World: A Proposal for Culture Care, Not Culture War,” Dr. Kyle Rapinchuk proposes that Christians too often engage in culture wars that make our neighbor our enemy. Instead, Kyle proposes that we should engage in culture care, working towards the flourishing of our neighbor and bringing reconciliation to a number of areas where our culture is hurting.
