It’s no surprise to any of us that ministry in a broken world is hard. We asked our friend Dan Darling to join us as we talk about how the kingdom of God relates to cultural engagement today, and how it relates to your everyday as a believer, no matter your context. His perspective and insight as a representative on the forefront of these conversations, as a pastor, and as a Christian is incredibly helpful.
