We’ve been quiet lately here at the MacRae Centre blog. That’s because we’ve been working hard to bring you a new resource (and because our last blog got accidentally deleted, but never mind). There’s a lot going on behind the scenes, including interviews with artists, conversations about First Nations, truth and reconciliation, and a nice chat with theologian and biblical scholar, Richard Bauckham.
But first things first.
Is life in today’s world complex and confusing? Do you find the rapid pace of change leaves you reeling as a Christian, and wondering where and how to stand firm in your faith? Many do. Life in contemporary culture is challenging. The struggle is real.
So, here at the MacRae Centre, we decided to make some of our teaching accessible to individuals and churches across the country. We want to help build the confidence of Christians in the midst of life in Canada today. We’ve produced a resource to help deepen our understanding of how to respond well to the world we live in, even when it feels out of control.
FEARLESS is a six-week small group video resource complete with leader’s guide that will help your group tackle head-on the fear and disorientation that life as a Christian in today’s world can bring.
We address questions like, What is culture? How does culture influence my faith? What does it mean to be in the world, and not of the world? How can my faith influence aspects of the culture in which I live? Can I learn to live with confidence and courage in today’s world?
The resource contains all you need to lead a small group through these questions with teaching, questions, and bible studies.
Wherever you are, you can access FEARLESS on demand, or download it to use later.
We are so committed to equipping leaders for service in the world as it is today, that we want to give you this resource at very low cost, or even for free! If you are a leader in a Canadian Baptist church, we have a code that will enable you to access the resource for free. If you are a leader in another denomination, and you think there are a number of church leaders like you who would like to use FEARLESS, let us know and we can give you a code for free access too. On the other hand, if you’re able to pay $25, that helps us to meet the costs of producing quality educational resources.
We’ve been able to give you FEARLESS with the generous support of Red Llama Media and the Atlantic Baptist Foundation. We are grateful for their partnership with Acadia Divinity College that makes this work possible.
Let us know how it goes. We’re already planning another series for next year. So go out there and be FEARLESS!
