Recorded: May 5, 2022

Dr. Darrell Bock initially considers six key texts on engagement and discusses how the church has been misdirected in many of its engagement approaches based on these texts in recent culture war efforts. He addresses questions like:

  • How do we engage with people who come from a very different place than we do?
  • How do we do so without a fight or fear of retribution?
  • Even more, how do we engage in an institutional context where what is decided often places the believer in tension between where they are in their conscience and what the institution is asking of them?

There are no easy answers to the dilemma this places us in, but how do we engage well in that situation where Scripture calls us to be light, draw people toward God, be gracious and yet represent God well in how we interact in such challenging circumstances?

Dr. David Bolender moderates and leads live participants through a time of Q&A, and discusses specific scenarios to think through.
