This is part 3 of a 3 part talk: Part 1 | Part 2
Daily life revolves around relationships. But the world (mis)shapes how we treat each other. This workshop explores how our relationships are affected by society’s current approach to sexuality, entertainment, technology, and consumerism, and helps us discover God’s resources that equip us in “this present age.”
In the last of a three-part talk, Bill Smith begins by exploring how a tolerant culture impacts our relationships. Tolerance is a wonderful thing when combined with other values in the Christian life. But, when you prize tolerance over all other virtues, relationships become shallower. Smith also examines the desire for authenticity in culture, and looks to the book of Daniel as a helpful example of godly living in a godless culture. Smith concludes with helpful questions for considering how culture impacts us and our relationships.
