transforming space into place: great example of culture making

The video below is a fascinating example of culture making. “It is not enough to condemn culture. Nor is it sufficient merely to critique culture or to copy culture. Most of the time, we just consume culture. But the only way to change culture is to create culture.” So says Andy Crouch, in relation to his great book Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling

So here’s a fascinating example of culture making, emerging from a vision for community among the city suburbs. In the words of Simon Holt: “A spirituality of the neighbourhood is one that embraces its most immediate context as a place of God’s presence and rich with sacred possibilities.” (God next door, 100)
