About this Episode
In a world of secular chaos, the Church can’t just hide behind “religious liberty” it must present its voice as one of beauty and virtue. As believers we seek to share the good news of the Bible with anyone who will listen, but we also have a role to play in blessing and preserving our culture too.
To be Church, more and more we must “contend” for our spot in the public conversation. We must try to be an alternative, constructive voice for beauty and virtue.
As Christians, we have a role to play in bringing beauty to a world committed merely to deconstructive ugliness, virtuous to a world committed to immoral libertinism
Even though it’s hard to be the voice of God’s “no” and God’s “yes,” on God’s terms for others, our culture needs it now more than ever.
We are “blessed to be a blessing,”… to strive to be a voice of morality, a people dedicated to beauty in the arts, to relationships, to community. To be people who strive to live virtuous lives.
