There are events in the life of every nation and generation that are defining. For my parents, one was the Great Depression. Another was Pearl Harbor and WWII. For those of us born before 2000, the terrorist attacks of 9-11 (2001) changed much about our nation, how we view the world and the role we play today in that world.
But wars, natural disasters and economic collapses are not the only types of events that forever change nations. Sometimes there are cultural or political events that shape and mold the national character and fiber of a people. Just consider a few in America’s history like slavery, women’s suffrage and no-fault divorce. Each of those issues and many more have created the country we now live in and celebrate this July 4th.
That is why, over the next couple of weeks at Mosaic, we’ll be looking hard and deep at what God has to say to us, His people, about how we should relate and respond to the recent cultural mega-shift that has taken place with regard to sexuality in America.
So, bring your brains. Bring your questions. Bring your hetero and homosexual friends and family. Bring your Bibles. And by all means, bring your hearts submitted to Jesus Christ—hearts that long for God’s blessings to be poured out on all people—as we wrestle with tough, real-world, nation-shaping realities in 2015.
See you Sunday at 10:00 a.m. at Healing Rooms (115 E. Pacific) as we worship, serve and seek God together.
