Moment with Dr Steve – Number Forty-one
Muted and Mutilated Conversation
The truth is…
People feel the crush of the culture now
People are filled with uncertainties about what they can, and then cannot say to their children
People are held tight in these cultural vices now – they are squeezed between that which they know to be true and right – and the culture that quite literally threatens them with harsh punishments – if they dare voice and then act upon their disagreement
People feel their homes have been invaded with these messy ideologies that confuse them – and thwart the development of their children
People feel financially crushed and pulled and even a bit maimed right now
People feel like sitting ducks and have no idea where to turn for hope and for thoughtful consideration and then open-conversation
People know churches and pastors are not ever going to address these cultural constraints
People know that schools and government types are their enemies now
People have no ‘safe place’ to turn and to discuss – openly and without criticism or fear of retribution – what is happening inside of their families
That is the issue – that is the vice grip parents feel each moment now.
We are building a ‘GCC’ – a ‘Global Cultural Conversation’.
The conversation includes uncomfortable topics and uneasy interactions.
