For many Christians, the concept of culture seems outside the realm of the gospel. "Keep culture for the sociology majors, but it doesn't belong in the church." Wrong. Jesus said to make disciples of all nations. That means that by its very nature, the mission we have been given is cross-cultural. We will interact with others, and the more we obey this call to gather the nations, the more cultures will be part of our family. That will create challenges. That is why Scripture calls us to be all things to all people. And that has everything to do with removing our own culture from the throne and becoming culturally flexible and culturally humble.
A Crown That Will Last is not an academic foray into the topic of culture. Rather, this is designed as a 7-week spiritual journey that will walk you through the heart of God's purpose for humanity, our mission and task as God's people, and what we need to do to share God's heart for his creation.
