Therefore he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and with Gentile worshippers . . . (Acts 17:17)
Paul retreated to a place where he could disengage himself from the culture. In a culture full of idols, the synagogue was the one place where the apostle could regain his perspective and be strengthened. For the church to engage the culture, we have to disengage. We have to look away to figure out where we will go and what we will say. Then we must look up to God for assurance that everything is all right before we re-engage with the culture.
In Living in the In-Between Times, Pastor Ralph Douglas West brings the story of the Old Testament prophet Samuel to life, showing you how God speaks in your “in betweens” and what it looks like to live faithfully in these seasons of waiting and wondering.
