Making connections between our culture & the gospel in everyday life.

Bringing The Family: A Proclamation

to the World into your world


Our Relatable writers come from a wide range of ages, places and backgrounds. We may be really different, but we’re all united in our desire to help others make connections between every day life and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We know there are a lot of challenging cultural issues in our day. We also know how hard it can be to make sense of them from a Christian worldview.

That’s why we’re here to keep you informed and show how the family proclamation relates to you.
