Spiritual Emphasis Day 2018 will be held February 2 with special guest James K. A. Smith presenting “The Calling of the Christian School: Prophetic, Public, Missional” at Chapel Rock Christian Church from 8:30-10:30am.
James K.A. Smith holds the Gary and Henrietta Byker Chair in Applied Reformed Theology and Worldview at Calvin College. He is an award-winning author and popular speaker that has emerged as a thought leader in building bridges between the academy, society, and the church.
His Cultural Liturgies trilogy (Desiring the Kingdom, Imagining the Kingdom, and Awaiting the King) has impacted our understanding of spiritual formation, how the church engages with culture, and education. Smith is a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Christianity Today, Slate, and First Things. He is also the editor-in-chief of Comment magazine.
