Cultural Relevance

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”?
