People need to see how the Bible connects to their every day life. As Tara shared, when church leaders take the time to acknowledge what is good and true in society at-large, they are able to build bridges to people that are otherwise impossible. It helps to demonstrate the relevance of Scripture for living. Look for opportunities to incorporate a more studious approach to culture in your own leadership. Practice this discipline and ask God to use it to bring more glory to His own name.
