Matters of culture should matter to us—because they matter to God. Hosted by Elizabeth Woodson and Adam Hawkins, the Culture Matters podcast explores the intersection of faith and culture. 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.

    Denominations and Institutions Part 2: Looking Ahead

    We're continuing our conversation around denominations and institutions with Kyle Worley this week.

Are they detrimental? Are they crumbling and if so, is that a bad thing?
