About Harbor Media
Harbor Media exists to help Christians navigate a post-Christian world. Much has changed in our culture in the last decade, and Christians everywhere find themselves under increasing pressure to either conform or disappear from public. How are we to respond to these pressures? What does a life of faithful presence look like in a hostile world? At Harbor, we want to wrestle with these questions, and we want to suggest a way forward:
Stand by the roads and look,
and ask for the ancient paths
where the good way is; and walk in it
and find rest for your souls."
– Jeremiah 6:16
We believe that the best thing Christians have to offer the world is their transformed and transforming presence. To that end, we want to help Christians find a path – a way of life – that can help them experience the transforming presence of Jesus day to day.
The Church’s approach to an intelligent carpenter is usually confined to exhorting him not to be drunk and disorderly in his leisure hours, and to come to church on Sundays. What the Church should be telling him is this: that the very first demand that his religion makes upon him is that he should make good tables.
– Dorothy Sayers, "Why Work"
We want to encourage and empower Christians to see their role in the marketplace as an essential part of their calling as believers, and as an essential part of the Church's work in the world. One of the best things a Christian can bring to the world is, as Dorothy Sayers put it, "Good work, done well."
The common good requires us to care for all people, loving our neighbor no matter what they believe.
– Gabe Lyons
All things that are truly good are common goods, meant to be shared and enjoyed together.
– Andy Crouch
Common good refers the way Christians might interact our changing world. It means loving our neighbors well, advocating a principled pluralism that advocates religious liberty in our society, both for us, and our non-Christian neighbors. It means finding opportunities to lock arms with non-Christian allies when their cause intersects with Christian values. And because all truth is God's truth, it means we're on the lookout for echoes of truth in art, science, pop culture, and politics. In short, it means thoughtfully participating in the culture around us, working for the good of all who live in it, and celebrating the good when we find it.
