About The Event
What do we do when our cultural values and practices clash with Biblical teachings? How do we advise new believers?
Freedom to celebrate culture can be found for Christians as they develop Scripturally sound ways to handle conflict and events such as births, marriages, and deaths in a way that honors God while still staying closely connected with family and community.
The Culture meets Scripture Workshop is designed to help believers uncover their culture’s assumptions and beliefs, and equip them to make godly choices when cultural practices clash with Scripture.
Participants will learn to explore the root reasons for a culture’s practices and rituals and then search the Scriptures for how God’s Word answers those needs.
