April 8th, 9am-12 midday
Jesus promised that the harvest was plentiful. Yes, there is a shortage of workers and yes, some are closed to the good news, but *God is at work, and there are many who are open and hungry* (Lk 10:1-12). *Why aren’t more people coming to know Jesus?*
Part of the problem can be found in the observable parallels between contemporary Christians and the first generations of Jewish disciples as recorded in the New Testament and the confusion between culture and the Kingdom of God.
This 3-hour interactive workshop will look at the relationship between culture and the Kingdom of God, and how culture can become an obstacle to the Gospel. Bring your Bible and a notepad.
– look at the OT/Jewish context
– dig in to some significant cross-cultural interaction Jesus and the apostles had in the NT
– start drawing conclusions for our own cross-cultural interactions we have with those God has placed around us
Facilitator: Scott Crawley from Praxeis. Scott has spent 18 years directly involved in cross-cultural ministry and mission, including ten years based in East and Central Asia.
