Ken Myers, host of Mars Hill Audio Journal, was recently interviewed on the podcast Ordinary Means about the topic of culture and the church. During the interview, Myers talked about different ways that the church must be counter-cultural in our current cultural environment. He outlined five main areas:

  • Language

  • Music

  • Food

  • Time

  • Inter-Generational Relationships

We have been trying to do some of this at my church. We are cultivating an appreciation for the history of church music by learning a new Psalm and an older hymn each month. We have certain times of the year when we have days of feasting (Christmas, Easter, etc.). We are also committed to not segregating our younger people from our older people, and strategically planning times for them to work together. Anyone have other ideas?
