Cultural Discernment in Digital Babylon

What does it look like to be a follower of Jesus in a post-Christian environment? In a recent study from The Barna Group called Faith for Exiles, David Kinnaman and Mark Matlock outline ‘Five Ways for a New Generation to follow Jesus in Digital Babylon’. Cultural discernment is one of these five defining features identified among committed young Christians. The term relates primarily to the life of the mind—how we think about and perceive our role as Christians today. Many of the challenges are brought to us via the stories in popular media as well as in curricula in schools and in academic textbooks. This workshop focusses on the practice of cultural discernment, using the concept of worldview as a helpful tool for cultural analysis and engagement. Thus, the following questions are central to our approach: How can we identify and respond to the underlying messages in films and TV shows? How can we unmask the myth of neutrality in textbooks?
