Overview

Open Forums are specifically designed for skeptics or those wrestling with the claims of Christianity. Each Open Forum included a brief concert by guest artists followed by a talk and open mic Q&A with Timothy Keller. This audio recording includes the talk only.

Talk Summary

This sermon talks about family values and how often, in big cities like New York City, there are family issues that aren’t solved. It suggests that the usual family values might not be enough, leading to problems and stress. It recommends using Christian teachings to help with these issues, highlighting how God is a caring, understanding Father. The sermon also points out the difference between good and bad ways of showing anger as a parent. It stresses the importance of always showing love and support, and wraps up by saying that outside help, like the forgiveness given through Jesus, is needed to fix family disagreements.
