But the gospel is never “out of it’s comfort zone.” The gospel is not more comfortable in the city or suburbs or country. It is as powerful in urban or rural settings. And that’s why we engaged this wonderful family free from feeling like we needed to have some background in dairy farming to be “relevant.” In fact, we rejoiced in our ignorance of dairy farming so that Christ’s power would be strong among us (cf. 2 Cor. 12:9).
Thank you, Lord, for reminding us that what makes us most relevant (and helpful) to people is not shared cultural backgrounds, but the grace of God in Christ.
