Transforming Teachers - Culture

  • 3 ways movies are searching for the Gospel

    I love movies. I always have, but for some reason I’ve grown more and more fascinated with movies in the last three or four years—the massive industry that stands behind them, the intricacies and subtleties that make for good acting and good narration, and most of all, the power of stories to communicate at such a deep, complex, emotional level. I loved the new Star Wars.

  • Reflect

    Finding ways to explain biblical truth in the midst of an ever-changing culture is a tough task. Reflect examines culture's popular ideas conveyed in entertainment, pop culture and current events through a Biblical lens. It is one of the many resources available from Summit Ministries. You can signup for a free subscription to the weekly email newsletter posts. When you sign up you’ll receive relevant examples that tie movie clips, songs, or trending issues to specific lessons in the Understanding the Times Series. Highly recommended

  • Scripture's window to the world

    We believe that the pervasive presence of technology in our lives justifies a careful examination as Christians seek to appraise all things according to the mind of Christ. Biblical-mindedness requires of us the wisdom to understand how the texts of Scripture speak to the issues of the day.

  • Seria o inglês a língua dos anjos?

    By Raphael Haeuser, 2017-02-19 in Clarabaia BraileiraLanguage of angels

    Perguntas como “Qual língua falaremos no céu?” ou “Qual é a língua dos anjos?” podem parecer engraçadas ou complexas, mas para elas só existem duas alternativas de resposta: ou será o Plattdeutsch—dialeto alemão falado especialmente pelos menonitas e que, segundo eles, leva-se uma eternidade para aprender; ou terá de ser o inglês, já que os americanos têm se mostrado incapazes de aprender um segundo idioma. Brincadeiras à parte, o fato é que a obsessão com o aprendizado de inglês chega a conferir-lhe uma aura angelical.

  • Understanding the Times digital homeschool curriculum

    Summit Ministries is offering six free lessons from their high school curriculum series for homeschool families (regular value is $129). It is available as an iPhone app or by accessing the SummitU site using a Chrome browser. The trial lessons are available for about one year. There are 36 lessons in a full year.

    I have personally benefitted a lot from the Summit Ministries lectures so would recommend you try these lessons for yourself.

    This is the most dynamic worldview experience available today. It puts the proven Summit program in a box to prepare students to stand against false worldviews, to be biblically strong, and to engage the culture with truth.

                                              Understanding the Times homeschool series

    This series is perfect for co-ops, too. With Summit’s proprietary digital app, you can create an entire syllabus in seconds (literally). Everything you need is included—discussion questions, quizzes, tests, videos, supplemental readings, and activities. Just pick whatever combination of courses you wish to construct a “graduate education” in apologetics, worldview, and cultural engagement:
    • Understanding the Faith is the Bible and apologetics course you’ve always wanted, teaching core biblical beliefs and how to refute the Christian worldview’s biggest critics.
    • Understanding the Times introduces students to non-Christian worldviews and teaches them how to think through and respond to competing ideas.
    • Understanding the Culture, available in the summer of 2017, deploys a biblical worldview to show students how to engage today’s most pressing issues.
    Understanding the Times is the classic worldview course studied by tens of thousands of students. Now it’s completely updated and vetted by over 65 Bible-believing experts.
     

    It’s the most captivating and engaging curriculum we’ve ever produced. And now with three courses, you have options to fit your family’s needs. Or you can use all three courses to give your high schooler a first-class worldview education.
