Quarterly briefings - walking your Christian life
November 2023 InterSections
Our November 2023 issue draws on a number of contributors who share thoughts on the surrounding culture which is ever-pressing against our faith, our families, and our fellowship. There is a particular focus on the task of Christian parenting in a secular world.
To help compile this issue, one of our regular writers, Brett Christensen, agreed to be a guest editor. For his Feature article, Brett interviews a host of Christian parents around Australia and summarises various challenges facing parents who wish to raise their children in the way of the Lord. Our International Letter is from Don Hooton, who lived in Sydney in the 1990s but now resides in Texas; Don reflects on the struggles Christian parents encounter in American culture – and suggests ways to help overcome those situations. Our Book Review shares Jessica Young’s assessment of Mama Bear Apologetics, a volume aimed at helping parents equip their children to counter what the authors call contemporary cultural lies.
Our Interview is with Theo & Maame Gyau, a Ghanaian couple living in Melbourne. Their observations about the role of religion and churches in African and Australian cultures make interesting reading. Our News section contains updates about Camp Revive in Victoria, the annual Men’s Challenge in Rotorua, New Zealand, and the KlesisEquip online courses which ran in 2023.
May these articles encourage you and strengthen your hand in God.
