Quick Overview:

Being Countercultural: Our Posture in a Changing Society, part of the Q Society Room experience, reminds you that the way of the world is not the way of the Christian. You’ll focus on ways the world masks sin to make it seem good and learn what you need to change to live life God’s way.

Following the example of the “Society Rooms” of the late 1600’s and the Clapham Circle of the early 1800’s, Q Society Rooms are designed to gather small groups of leaders to dialogue, learn, and work together to explore how to express the Christian faith in a post-Christian culture. A Participant’s Book, Leader’s DVD and Guide, and a group project complete the Q Society experience, which will challenge every participant’s innermost beliefs and pre-conceived ideas about life, faith, the world, and cultural responsibility In Being Countercultural: Our Posture in a Changing Society, host Gabe Lyons and DVD presenters Andy Crouch and Mike Foster explore how Christians need to live in contrast to the ways of the world. In this Q Society Room experience, each individual and the group as a whole are challenged to return to a biblical way of life. In a harsh, sinful world, you can live counter-culturally by practicing discernment, showing grace, and valuing responsibility. Lyons and Norton Herbst then help individuals and the group as a whole explore—through short articles by noted authors, transcripts from Q Talks (included in the Leader’s DVD and Guide), five meetings to discuss important topics related to the overall theme, and thought-provoking questions—a biblical perspective on living a countercultural life in an out-of-control world. Meetings are divided among video, group reading, and group activity or project. Being Countercultural: Our Posture in a Changing Society group meetings include: Group Meeting One – Video: Gabe Lyons | Being Countercultural Group Meeting Two – Essay: Jason Locy and Tim Willard | Veneer Group Meeting Three – Video: Andy Crouch | Power, Privilege and Risk Group Meeting Four – Video: Mike Foster | People of a Second Chance Group Meeting Five – Group Project and Discussion
