Workshop Session 1: Good Faith
Many in today’s society think Christianity is irrelevant and extreme. How will Christians respond? In a culture plagued by contentious issues such as race relations, sexuality, and politics, many Christians are overwhelmed as they try to faithfully live their convictions while treating those who disagree with respect and compassion. Based on David’s latest book, Good Faith (March 2016, written with unChristian co-author, Gabe Lyons), this talk explores how the Christian community can be a counterculture for the common good in an increasingly hostile society. Learn about current trends creating obstacles and opportunities to proclaim the gospel. Discover the new moral code shaping the broader culture and seducing the Christian community. And find out ways Christians can offer loving, life-giving friendships to others through difficult conversations.
