Everybody has a gospel that they believe, a way of interpreting the world. A cultural story that shapes and defines their life. We can call it a gospel because it contains
1. Creation – this is how the world/my life ought to be. What gives people identity?
2. Fall – this is what is wrong with the world/my community/me. How do they account for wrong in the world?
3. Redemption – this is what we need in order to fix what is wrong with the world. What is their solution?
4. Consumation – this is what it will look like when everything is fixed. What are their hopes?
