Being Missionaries to our own Children: Secularity, Faith, the Church, and our Children
March 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Monday, repeating until March 20, 2017
This lecture series will be March 6th, 13th, and 20th at 7pm at the Whitley Theological Center
Until very recently, the churches in the USA were sending missionaries to foreign lands, Africa, Latin America, and Asia, but today the toughest missionary task in the whole world is to evangelize our own children. The real missionary task now is at home. How does someone be a missionary in San Antonio, Washington, Las Vegas, Vancouver, Manhattan, and at your own family table? These lectures will examine the cultural and ecclesial roots of our present struggles with faith and church in the secularized world and try to point the road forward.
