Clare Bruce talks to Sam Chan, blogger, speaker, doctor and theology teacher, who looks to the example of Jesus and also the Apostle Paul, to develop relationships by finding common threads in cultural perspectives.

"“If we listen carefully we can actually hear echoes of the gospel in other peoples’ cultural storylines,” Sam says. “In every story or movie or pop song there’s actually an analogy of the gospel. Some very obvious and some not so obvious. And part of the fun and the challenge is to find these analogies, or what is the cry of the heart.”"
