Resource: AME's Christianity in Context lessons

Context is one of the most basic concepts in missiology: that an individual or group's social, political, economic, and cultural surroundings impact their understanding and practice of the Christian faith. The African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church has put out a resource called "Christianity in Context." Featuring Rev. Dr. Courtney Bryant, the multimedia educational resource is designed for black Christians, but non-black Christians who want to learn more about the context of their black sisters and brothers can engage with it too. The lessons invite the faithful to grapple with some important concepts related to mission, such as context, justice, solidarity, action, and the relationship between culture and the presentation of the gospel. They do this even if they do not use the term "mission" directly. For more, see the intro video below.
