The second Culture Conference will be Friday, February 9 and Saturday, February 10 at Hinson Baptist. Building on Ken Myers’ Engaging Culture talks of 2017, author Joe Rigney will speak on the power of story in building Christian culture and our everyday lives. He will spur us to let great stories shape our loves, and as a result, let the Gospel shape our world. Lectures will feature The Chronicles of Narnia and "Till We Have Faces" by C. S. Lewis, "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen, "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and selections from Shakespeare.
The Portland Culture Conference encourages Christians to consider the way we shape and are shaped by our world. Church and school leaders, teachers and students will be challenged to see life and culture in the context of history and eternity. The Gospel of Christ is not merely a beautiful truth to guide our spiritual lives, but it sheds light and wisdom on all of life, from Creation to the Church to all realms of Culture.
