Why Separate When You Can Cooperate?

The idea of “separation of church and state” was never meant to become a mental block to the people of God engaging neighbors, schools, marketplace and culture, but it has. Add to that the underpinnings of dualism separating the idea of what is sacred and secular, and a strong cultural filter has worked to isolate Christians in their own thinking about the influence that can be brought to our cities. In the San Francisco Bay Area, Kids Club Consultants founder Bev Daily has noticed that schools and public officials now welcome the church and the positive influence of loving adults in the schools, yet churches hesitate as they don’t yet know of the relational open doors and the legal rights that can put their influence in direct connection with kids and families. But, right there in that profoundly diverse region, many churches have now noticed and responded to the “welcome sign” and become involved in local schools. In the talk “Jesus at School”, Daily unpacks how this is happening through Kids Clubs in the Bay Area and beyond.
