Workshop Session 5: "Scotland Calling": Lessons on Discipleship and Mission from the Post-Christian Culture of Scotland
The Church of Scotland has an end date – 2033 – this is according to the latest church attendance stats. With less than 2% Bible believing Christians, Scotland has become a post-Christian culture. (Could they be just a generation ahead of the USA?) Is it time to shut up shop and turn the lights out? The answer is a resounding "NO!" Come hear what can be learned for our culture from the Forge Europe and Forge Scotland Directors as they outline how Forge is enabling discipleship, mission and church planting. Could there also be not a "Macedonian call," but rather a "Caledonian call" – "coming over and helping us?"
Time: Thursday, 8:45 – 9:45am
