A proper definition of a family culture is long overdue. I’ve been avoiding the question because it seems so large and overwhelming.
What is culture? What is a family culture?
As much as I love the idea of a family culture, I don’t feel like we have much of one. Who am I to blog on building a family culture?
It’s time to tackle these questions and fears. Thankfully, I recently found some guidance in the form of a gripping book.
Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling by Andy Crouch
I’ll be tackling sections of the book bit by bit over the next few weeks as I grapple with what Crouch is saying and seek to find application to family life. There’s a lot in there and I’m super excited about it.
I’ll share some quotes and some thoughts and I eagerly wait your insights in the comments.
Here’s a quote to whet your appetite, although the family is just one of the many areas for culture making discussed in the book.
“I hope families will read this book and discover that the family, so seemingly insignificant in an age of technology and celebrity, is still the heart of culture, the primary place where most of us are called to cultivate and create.”
