There is a Story that beautifully transforms individuals, communities, and nations. What is that transforming Story? It is the Story we find in the Bible — of God revealing His glory to all the peoples of the world through Jesus Christ.
In the first half of the Cultural component the distinctive power of this transforming Story is presented. Darrow Miller states in his book, Discipling Nations, that this Story should shape our view of life; for it is the true worldview, the biblical worldview. Contrasted are the animistic and the secular worldviews, which inevitably lead to cultures of despair.
The second half of the Cultural component explores the Romance of the Universe — with images as diverse as wedding pictures, beautiful landscapes, and photos of galaxies taken from the Hubble telescope — all to demonstrate the creative majesty of God.
Then, a variety of Scriptures are presented that describe the Romance of God the Father — choosing for His Son a Bride, comprised of people from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. It’s deep, beautiful, delightful!
Our hours are 9 to 5, Monday thru Friday, Mountain Standard Time.
