Beginning September 15th, we will be looking at the challenge of following Jesus in a fractured world. Christians feel like a minority in a secular world, surrounded by neighbors who are either suspicious of Christianity or uninterested.
And we have the pressure of our own problems. We too have been fractured and fragmented by the Fall (see Genesis 3). How do we go about being formed and shaped by Jesus rather than the secular world around us? How do we do what Paul says in Colossians 2:8?:
"See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ."
We are constantly taking in stories and information, in music, tv, movies and books. Conversations with our co-workers, friends and family shape us, along with rants from your political channel of choice. We are constantly under pressure to see the world a certain way. These stories work to take us captive. This class will help us form and develop a biblical - Jesus centered identity, and give tools to apply our faith to what we watch, listen to. God-willing we will be a little better at talking about Jesus to ourselves and to others.
Let's learn together how to let the story of Jesus form us. For as Jesus Himself said, "you will know the truth and the truth will set you free."
