What’s so important about cultural discernment? In today’s article, Benjamin Videtich sensitively works through two common approaches related to cultural engagement. Both are expressed by Jesus in his own life and ministry, but usually Christians will resonate with one over the other.
It’s one thing to affirm the need for prayer, but it’s quite another to know what that looks like in practical life. We don’t live in a world very conducive to that sort of life, and it’s not clear that the church does a good job of teaching it. So here I’d like to offer a pattern for prayer that can help any Christian begin to build a rhythm of prayer into daily life.
