The Words Apart Series: Book One
media: Our World calls to us through our ipods, magazines, movies and television sets. Our Faith suggests our lives ought to reflect values and sentiments that often conflict with popular culture. Our God wants us to fit in, to share His love with others. Given that we are constantly bombarded by images of sexuality, substance abuse, cutting & violence, how are we internalizing these media messages and what potential impact do they have on our lives?
faith: What is Faith? What impact does our Faith have on our daily lives? Are we guided by Faith, or is Faith an afterthought, a subjective notion defined not by reality but by feeling? Challenging Christians to delve deeper into their understanding of Godly living, Brett examines common spiritual practices, their heritage and how a strong Faith can more dynamically shape the heart of a young Christian.
culture: What is North American culture and how does it affect us? More importantly, are we engaged in affecting it? Are our Faith and our culture in conflict with one another? In this discussion, Brett facilitates a dialog on the Christian world-view and how we, by Faith, can begin to engage the culture around us through the lens of a knowledgeable and discerning Christian.
