Cultural Relevance in Preaching

Cultural relevance in preaching is good.  I don’t want to preach to yesterday.  God has made me responsible to the actual people around me.  I like that.  I want to get better at it.  But there is more.  Shouldn’t a message from the King above make people say, “Something altogether unearthly has come to town, something from beyond ourselves, a word from a distant shore.  That’s why it’s so helpful”?
