Kingdom, Culture & Community

[title]

Kingdom, Culture and Communityis the first sermon series of 2018-19, here at SEMC.

  • ​Awareness and understanding of culture and community is essential, and so too is a biblically-enriched vision of Christ’s kingdom.  A central theme of Jesus’ teaching and preaching was kingdom. 
  • This series, beginning with Jesus’ announcement, the kingdom of heaven has come (Matt. 4:12-17), and incorporating other Bible narratives about culture, will serve to bring a vision of Christ’s kingdom into focus.
  • Community is a way of life for us, but what does it mean?  How about culture?  Cultures bear both the image of God and human falleness.  Imago Dei, is commonly understood, in relationship to individuals, however, rarely understood as applicable to cultures.
