What Does it Mean to Be “Woke” and How Does Church Discipline Apply? (Owen Strachan)

In this post, Owen Strachan responds to critiques of his recent lecture series on Christianity and wokeness, defining wokeness as:

…first and foremost a mindset and a posture borne of Critical Race Theory and related systems of thought. The term itself means that one is “awake” to the true nature of our society where so many fail to see it. In the most specific sense, this means one sees the comprehensive inequity of our social order and the corresponding need for racial and social justice.
