Ironic Mind Meets Literal Mind
Does pop culture owe Christian culture anything?
Commons Lecture Hall (200)
A new breed of Christians interested in engaging mainstream culture has emerged. At the same time, pop-culture journalists have started examining evangelical culture. We'll talk about pop-culture critiques of Christian culture as well as uncomfortable seams where cultures merge.
No Art, No Grace
Fine Arts Center Auditorium (1,200)
Steve will use his current MTh studies to unpack the intrinsic place of the artist in the mission of the Church to bring God’s Kingdom on earth: how that place was lost and needs to be rediscovered. He will look at how grace can only interrupt the way the world is when we dream dreams and see visions. There will be references to U2, Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions and Bloc Party among others. His hope is to big up your ideas on art and grace that we might change the world.
