The Kingdom Culture approach is counter-cultural, it’s Upside Down, it's not the kingdom of the world, but Jesus’ kingdom is a better way. In the "Sermon on the Mount" Jesus sets out a different approach. He makes it clear that his followers should be meek. But what does it mean to be meek? Find out in this message.
