It’s Time To Make A Difference

Mary Poplin, Professor of Education at Claremont Graduate University in California, recently featured in two articles in Christianity Today (below), is about to embark on an ambitious project to help prepare students and the church to thrive in the challenging 21st-century university environment. An ex-radical New Age, Marxist, Feminist Dr. Poplin, became a Christian at 41 while living and teaching out of the very worldviews that now dominate our education system and culture, which are a confusing mixture of what is true, false and partially true.

One of the major problems we face today is that our young people are thoroughly unprepared by our secular school system and the church to discern, evaluate and cope with the radically different worldviews they face in every area of study (and life) in the modern university. Dr. Poplin, along with Producer, Kirk Manton and Film Makers, Ralph Linhardt (Theophany Films, and Eastgate Creative), Matt Rowley, and others, are working together to produce a powerful eight-part small group video series that can help all of us, young and old, understand our culture through the eyes of Christ and so to discern the true from false and partially true.

If you would like to learn more and/or help underwrite the initial production phase of this project, please email us at kirkmanton@gmail.com. Our goal is to raise $5000 to cover the production cost of video recording Dr. Poplin’s powerful story and teaching.  In February, we will be video recording her four one hour lectures divided into eight segments from her book, Is Reality Secular?: Testing the Assumptions of Four Global Worldviews.  These lectures will be presented before a live audience of college students in Amarillo, Texas. This content along with Mary’s personal introductions and discussion questions for each episode (to be filmed later in Southern California) will make up the core of this new dynamic small group resource for High School and College Students. There is planned a second version for the Church at large.  Your contribution can help make these much need resources become a reality.
