Eitel Auditorium, Jacumin-Simpson Missions Center
What does it mean to be in the world and not of the world?
How do our small steps fit into the bigger picture?
What is our salvation for?
About the Film: Have you ever felt like everything around you was a mess? How are we to operate among such brokenness? What impact do our everyday choices have on the bigger story? For the Life of the World: Letters to the Exiles is a 7-part series from Action Institute that gives the big picture overview of a compelling vision of Christianity’s relationship to culture and the various economies of life: family, creative service, ordering institutions, education and wisdom institutions, wonder and the fine arts, and then the church itself. This film is engaging and visionary, whimsical at points and substantive all in a single package. Join us as we take on a new perspective on how Christian’s deal with the world.
