What a great time we had with Dr. David Fitch, from Northern Seminary in Chicago, and Peace of Christ Church in Westmont, Illinois! David is fun, and quite intellectual - a great combination. We spoke about a course he will be teaching by the same title of this episode, and it was an awesome conversation.
This is probably an episode you'll want to listen to twice (at least our conversation with Fitch) because it is so dense. I (Jeff) heard a whole bunch that I never picked up when we actually recorded it.
Fitch talks about bringing the Gospel to the culture, through the church, and the Holy Spirit. He talks about the relationship between the Trinity and Mission and how the church discerns what God is already doing in the community and then joins Him in it, calling the community to the Lordship of Jesus Christ - which is the Gospel. So much great content in this episode.
Jonny and I are so happy to share this with you, as we bring you right into our conversation with David Fitch. May you be as encouraged as we were!
