Shine: Bridge Training 2021
We are living in a culture that is consistently committed to not only rejecting Christ, but also to create new ways for our most vulnerable to stray from the truth. By grace we have the truth of God’s Word and relevant stories of our spiritual ancestors living in similar times. We are exiles, and we must learn to shine in exile, and teach our children to shine in exile by cultivating resilient faith in digital Babylon.
