Advancing through Adversity: Speaking of Jesus in our Secular and (nearly) ‘Post-Christian’ Setting.
The goal of this cohort is to equip lead pastors and worship pastors to practically apply the implications of works like Disruptive Witness by Alan Noble and Rhythms of Grace by Mike Cosper to their worship gatherings and produce liturgical elements for their churches.
Disruptive Witness: Speaking Truth in a Distracted Age
Mike Cosper, Alan Noble
Our distracted, secular age creates several barriers to faith for non-Christians—barriers that require believers to evaluate how they communicate the gospel. It is easier than ever for people to not think about life's big questions, and harder than ever for people to conceive of a transcendent, living, loving God who has revealed himself in Scripture. To disrupt the barriers of distraction and secularism, we must recapture the wonder of God's world in our personal habits, corporate worship, and communal activities. In this workshop, Mike Cosper and Alan Noble will consider how evangelicals can apply the insight of Charles Taylor to the work of the local church.
