This coming weekend at Eastbrook Church we begin a new sermon series entitled “Daniel: Apocalyptic Imagination and Exile Faith.”
What does it mean to live our faith out in the midst of a foreign land? How do we image what it means to be followers of God when the imagination of our culture is bent? Daniel models a life of faith as an exile in Babylon. He does this in large part through an imagination set ablaze by the Holy Spirit, enabling him to see himself and the world in light of God’s kingdom. He lives with faith under pressure, standing up to the culture without compromise, while also rising to a position of influence within society. He was a man of prayer and faith who heard from God. He was used by God powerfully within his generation for the good of others. How might we become people like Daniel in our own day and culture?
Join us at Eastbrook each weekend, or follow-along online here.
