Engage Culture

Esther 3:1-4:17

The story of Esther is timeless and inspiring: an orphan, minority woman who rises to a seat of power only to be faced with the dilemma of risking her meteoric rise and privilege, as she attempts to save her people. We know Ester finds the courage to confront the king and thus the cultural norms, and God uses her to bring change to her world...simply because she was willing to engage her culture.

This week we explore our 5th Practice, Engage Culture, and ask the question: what does to mean to engage the cultures we find ourself in, and seek to critique and change the things we know are not right, good, holy, and of God?
