April 23 | Weakness: Jesus’ Path to Power – Dr. Kyle Strobel
Join us for our first spring Faith & Culture Lecture. Dr. Strobel will lecture on Weakness: Jesus’ Path to Power from his most recent book The Way of the Dragon, Or The Way of the Lamb: Searching for Jesus’ path of power in a church that has abandoned it. He will speak to the fact that too often the church falls prey to the seductions of worldly power by chasing relevance and influence. The way of the Lamb, Jesus’ path, is a way of weakness that is counter-cultural to our modern day understanding of how people come into power.
May 7 | Safe Families Presentation – Brewer Family
Safe Families for Children is a national movement of compassion that began in Chicago in 2003 as an alternative to the foster care system. It was started by a Christian man who believed the church could provide care to families in crisis and push back against some of the brokenness in our communities. The ministry uniquely provides biblical hospitality and support to children and families in crisis through a network of volunteer host families. Safe Families is dedicated to family support, stabilization and child abuse prevention. From day one, Safe Families has relied on volunteer host families and the support of local churches to come alongside those in need. Local churches and individuals can support host families with prayer and other practical needs during placements such as meals, transportation, clothing or diapers.
Chad and Christie Brewer became a host family with Safe Families in Minnesota in the spring of 2013. They have continued to serve as a host family in Orange County and occasionally provide short-term placements for local children. They look forward to sharing more about this ministry that has been life giving for their family and create vision for ways Redeemer can consider getting involved in Safe Families for Children in Orange County.
