Rooted Podcast: Gospel Contextualization of Anxiety and Academic Pressure in Affluent Suburban and Asian American Contexts

Young people in both affluent suburban and Asian-American settings experience intense stress and academic pressure. This workshop from our 2018 conference in Nashville examines this issue on the surface level. Clark Fobes and Cameron Cole, who work in these contexts respectively, deconstruct the cultural dynamics and idols that drive the stress and anxiety in these different settings. They each discuss how they communicate the gospel in different ways in these unique settings based on understanding the culture at a deeper level. This workshop offers tools on cultural analysis and faithful gospel contextualization, and helps us grow in cultural awareness as we see how the gospel addresses all races and cultures.
