Cultural Friday 5


I have spent the week at Summer School studying the Gospel and Western culture, we have looked at art, literature, music, film and popular culture in their myriad expressions. With that in mind I bring you the cultural Friday 5.

Name a

1. Book

2. Piece of music

3. Work of art

4. Film

5. Unusual engagement with popul;ar culture

That have helped/ challenged you on your spiritual journey.

Bonus: Is engagement essential to your Christian faith, how and why?

Let us know in comments if you play and we'll trek on over.

Even better, post a direct link to your blog entry in your comment using the following formulation:
<a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a>

  3. I am en route to a lay ministry training -- and, frankly, at 7:30 am I don't have the cognitive capacity to handle such heavy questions -- but check back at my place after 9 pm tonight and I'll prolly have my Friday Five posted.

  10. I have to write my sermon today... but I couldn't resist playing here. I think I'm not very cultured... or cultural... but perhaps I'm culturing.

  11. Thanks this is a great Friday Five.

    Makes one think of the impact of these things on me...so others will be impacted by what they see and engage in too. So,I engaged here.
