What Time Is It? Worship Confronting Culture

Worship As Counter Culture

How can we attend to the heart-longings of those who come seeking rest for their weary souls? Are we offering people more of the same, or something from a different world…a world centered on God's heartbeat? What does it mean for us to be counter-cultural?
