This summer Salt & Light Global’s Academy equipped the body of Christ to take the heart of Jesus to the culture — and speak of Him in the public square. Many people from many places participated and attended our Summer 2020 courses and seminars. Here is an overview of God at work this summer at SLG’s Academy.
I. The Gospel and the Culture
In this four week course we studied how to wisely and strategically respond to issues in the culture. Prof. William Wagner and Pastor Gary Page equipped Covid-capacity crowds to engage the culture. Together we studied how the Gospel informs us on issues relating to:
- Orphans and Widows
- Sex Slavery
- Sexual Morality
- Religious Liberty
- Reaching the Unreached
II. Summer Apologetics – The Reason for God
This Summer Keldon Scott led a six week summer apologetics course using Tim Keller’s video series, The Reason for God. Together we learned how to answer tough questions like:
- Isn’t the Bible a Myth?
- How Can You Say There Is Only One Way to God?
- What Gives You the Right to Tell Me How to Live My Life?
- Why Does God Allow Suffering?
- Why Is the Church Responsible for So Much Injustice?
- How Can God Be Full of Love and Wrath at the Same Time?
III. Passing the Flame of Liberty
In this six week Online Zoom series on the Michigan Constitution, Prof. William Wagner covered the following topics:
- Structure & Power: The Michigan Constitution, We the People!
- Good Governance: Michigan Locked Down
- Relevance of Judicial Selection and Elections
