Living in a Collapsing Culture


We are.

Does that mean we too are collapsing?

Not necessarily.

How do I change that answer to “No!”?

Before I get to that, I just want you to know that I considered two other titles for this post:

  • Faithful in Contemporary America
  • Thriving Spiritually in These Last Times

Those two, along with the one I actually used, are three (similar) theme ideas I came up with for our annual Bible Conference at Hopewell Mennonite Church.

I attended a planning session on February 26. Also with me, some topic ideas:

  1. Lighting the Darkness
  2. Being Wise as Serpents and Harmless as Doves
  3. Preparing for Perilous Times
  4. Seeking First Things First
  5. Overcoming Fears and Anxieties
  6. Loving God First of All and Above All
  7. Showing the Face of Jesus at WalMart
  8. Influencing Politics and the Civil Society
  9. Acknowledging God in All Our Ways
  10. Hungering and Thirsting After Righteousness
  11. Discerning and Refuting Ecumenicism
  12. Cultivating an Ongoing and Expanding Revival
  13. Living in Holiness Amid the Normalization of Perversion
  14. Building Each Other Up in the Most Holy Faith
  15. Knowing for What to Live…and Die
  16. Offering Anabaptist Christian Solutions
  17. Warning the Wanderer and Rescuing the Lost
  18. Sustaining the Weary
  19. Anchoring our Families
  20. Exercising Wisdom in Our Use of Electronic Media
  21. Loving the Scriptures
  22. Watching in Prayer
  23. Walking Humbly With My God
  24. Responding Redemptively to Failure
  25. Taking Our Place Among the Called and Chosen and Faithful

And that’s all I have to say for now. 🙂

  1. Looks like a very timely topic and theme. Wish I could be there for the conference. Any chance it will be streamed or at least recorded and made available for download?

    • Alas, I wasn’t sufficiently clear. 😳

      The themes and topics were ideas which I had with me at the meeting. However, I didn’t present them til late in the meeting (I’m kinda bashful that way). So what you read above is not what’s on the “agenda” for the conference. When I know the program, I’ll try to remember to post it.

      Regarding live streaming, nope. Regarding recording, extremely likely. Regarding availability for download, less so.

      Thanks for your supportive interest, Rob!

Comment? Sure!

Above all, love God!
