What pleases God to allow us to be born into such a time, season, and culture as we see today? Surely our Father is hoping that we engage in life with others, and how do we do that to be like Christ was in his culture? Amazingly, this course shows us how! Social and political life in our culture has fixed attention onto topics, like: poverty, sex, marriage and family issues, economic and racial disparity – topics that we don’t typically hear talked about in church. What solution(s) does the living church, the body of Christ, and YOU have to offer, define and direct divine attention and guidance to in these situations?  How do we live and thrive in such counter-culture where Jesus is concerned? Moreover, who are we being in making a difference?
