November InterSections – Christians & Culture Wars

A culture war typically refers to an ideological conflict between groups of people with different ideals, values, and beliefs. In the midst of a culture war, what might a Christian response look like?

In our Feature article, Christian Bargholz examines Jesus’ interaction with a Samaritan woman in John 4 and how to navigate a culturally tense situation. In Food for Thought, Dale Christensen reflects on recent events involving Israel Folau, and his religious comments in social media. Harold Shank writes our International Letter, reflecting on his recent trip through Australia and South East Asia and reminding us that hope crosses culture. 

We interview Frank Cunningham from the Southwest congregation in Campbelltown, NSW, who shares his spiritual history from England to Australia. Benny Tabalujan reviews Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery, a biography by Eric Metaxas.

For our ChurchScene, Graeme Offer tells us about the Cairns Church of Christ in northern Queensland. Finally, our News section includes updates about Camp Revive in Victoria, the 50th anniversary celebration of Belmore Road Church of Christ in Melbourne, the Toowoomba Lectureship in Queensland, and the Bankstown Family Seminar in Sydney. 

We offer this issue to honour God, uplift you, and provide help and hope for everyone living in a time of great cultural upheaval.

Now if that's the way God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and thrown into an oven tomorrow, how much more will he clothe you — you who have little faith?
Luke 12:28
