Sea change.

Tuesday, October 18, 2005

In the last few years, evangelical colleges have begun changing their attitude about popular culture. Rather than blanket rejection, these schools are interested in engaging popular music, film, video games, et cetera. Last year, I covered the beginnings of this “paradigm shift” in an article that appeared at Christianity Today Music. Now, Messiah College has taken their engagement model to the next level with a weekend conference:

Faith and Popular Culture
Reconciling with the Popular Arts
November 11-12, 2005
Messiah College
Grantham , PA

Featuring concerts from Jeff Tweedy, Sarah Masen, Sam Ashcroft, and Matt Slocum
Lectures from Steve Turner, David Dark, Andy Whitman, Crystal Downing, and our own Ken Heffner (among many others)

Three cheers to Jeff Rioux for getting this off the ground! Click here if you want to register.
