Q8: Andy Crouch
Author & Journalist
Why We Can[‘t] Change the World

The best possible news we can hear: We are not the ones to change the world.

We are the ones who have survived our own ambition to change the world….

2 events that led to the most lasting change ever – The Exodus and the Resurrection.

Without the Exodus – no law….Without the resurrection – no church, no gospel.

Tremendously important events….

Challenge: Our sense of time.  Our sense of place.  Our sense of power.

God is in the business of rescuing the powerless.

The goodness of the poor is that they are not as poor as they or we think they are.

Who is “Transforming Culture”?  If it is God….  We are not the AGENTS.  We are the PATIENTS – those who suffer and those who are being healed.
