(Moody, 2019)

WHO: Brandon O’Brien, director of content development and distribution for Redeemer City to City.

HE SAYS: “America is divided along a lot of lines and over a lot of issues. Because these conversations are complicated and difficult, all this complexity is often simplified into one big division, a division that summarizes them all: the urban/rural divide.”

THE BIG IDEA:
Christians need to root their identity in Christ, not in where they are from.

THE PROGRESSION:
The author presents an awareness of America’s divisions and challenges Christ followers to have conversations with one another to create a richer, more effective Christian community.

“Our highest calling is not to conform to the values of the place we live in but to be progressively transformed into the image of Christ.”
