Stonestreet: Restoring All Things: Joining God’s Redemptive Plan
Written By David E. Smith   |   08.20.19

In the preceding lectures from the 2019 IFI Worldview Conference, John Stonestreet addressed what culture really is, along with its role in God’s creation and what we as Christians have to do with it. In this final session, “Restoring All Things: Joining God’s Redemptive Plan,” he tells us how we can truly change culture, with the reminder that if you don’t go about doing so in an intentional way, you won’t do it; or worse, the culture will change you.

With questions under the categories of “how is culture shaping you” and “how are you shaping culture,” Stonestreet shows us how to reflect on the workings of our own lives as well as begin to work in our own local communities, all under the greater picture of the redemption that our Lord Jesus Christ has bought for us.
