Culture

culture / n. the sum total of ways of living built up by a group of human beings, which is transmitted from one generation to another. (Macquarie Dictionary)

gospel + culture + church = reformission. …”living in the tension of being culturally liberal yet theologically conservative Christians and churches who are absolutely driven by the gospel of grace to love their Lord, their neighbours and their fellow Christians.” (Mark Driscoll)

Taking these together, it’s important that we are aware of what ‘ways of living’ are being transmitted through the generations so that we can successfully live in the tension of being grace driven and culturally aware.

In our generation, some of the most powerful forms of cultural transmission are books, movies/TV, music and the web. These pages represent my curious wanderings amidst Australian and global culture and may assist you with yours.
