Acts 17:16-34 - Athens: The Gospel to the Marketplace
This Sunday we come to a passage that has been foundational for Redemption Hill Church since the very beginning. Even before our church had a name, when it was just an idea, Acts 17 and Paul's time in Athens shaped what would be our approach to life and ministry in this city. I continue to believe that DC is our culture's Athens - a place of education and learning, where ideology is openly discussed in the marketplace, and it is filled with inhabitants who "spend their time in nothing except telling or hearing something new." I am eager to open this text up together and to see what we can learn as we continue to work to bring good news to this great city.
