Movies Are Prayers by Josh Larsen, Free for CAPC Members
In Movies Are Prayers, Josh Larsen exemplifies how critical engagement with a film can be an act of neighbor-love.
Tim Keller gives a helpful, short lecture on cultural engagement, a summary of Chapter 5 in his book Center Church. While the lecture is geared toward building and applying a model for church ministry, there are profound similarities with how we think about culture here at Christ and Pop Culture. Whether a downtown NYC church, a Christian starving artist, or a website like ours, Keller provides resources that well articulate the ideals we strive for in our model of reading culture through the lens of Christ – one lens among many.
I highly recommend you watch the video, but if you can’t, the most valuable thing you can do is download this chart (which is the foundation for his thought), print it out, and wherever your own approach to culture falls on the chart, keep looking toward the center.
