We also tend to either completely shelter ourselves from our culture or completely embrace our culture without discernment. But to be missional, we must take a middle approach demonstrated to us by Paul in Acts 17.
Paul's Approach in Athens (Acts 17)
- Observe the culture (v. 16)
- Spend time in the marketplace (v. 17-21)
- Connect and confront (v. 22-29)
- Point to Jesus (v. 30-31)
