Looking at everything from politics, art and entertainment to issues such as racial reconciliation and the sanctity of human life, we discuss what it looks like to live faithfully on mission—in the world but not of the world.

Deep Topics, Shallow content

So glad to see a podcast focussed on culture but disappointed at the superficial exploration and discussion of the topics. It’s like listening to a group of buddies at the local Starbucks; quickly apparent that none have ever read anything other than a bible school pamphlet.
Listen to “This cultural moment” for contrast
