The life of evangelical churches and their spiritual leaders has been portrayed in some recent films and series. Can they help us start conversations?
Spanish evangelicals launch a series of videos explaining how the Reformation has impacted society. In July, Madrid will host the “15J”, a week with a Congress, evangelism and concerts to commemorate the 500th anniversary.
To examine this influence, evangelicals in Spain have launched the project: "8 causes that impacted the world."
EDUCATION, CREATION CARE, FREEDOM, AND MANY MORE
It is a series of short documentary videos in which each month a "cause" that changed society will be exposed.
Education, culture, science and, and many other isssues have been shaped by the spiritual change experienced by people around the world thanks to the re-discovery of the Bible and its influence in every aspect of everyday life.
The eight "causes" of the project include: fighting against illiteracy, service, freedom from slavery, martyrs of faith, dignification of races and cultures, social justice, creation care and dignification of the human being as a creature of God.
This initiative is part of the activities that are taking place worldwide to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.
“15J, THE CALLED OUT ONES“
In Spain, a special week called "15 J, the called out ones" has been planned, from 10 to 15 July, in which there will be several activities that aim to gather thousands of evangelicals in Madrid.
Organisers believe the conference will be "an opportunity for leaders and pastors to take a healthy look at today's evangelical reality and to draw up a positive outlook for the church, its challenges and opportunities today and in the immediate future."
There will also be an urban youth camp, commemorative services, a march through the main streets of Madrid, and a great final concert that will close the events.
