The Christ-IN Culture

Religion & Spirituality Podcasts >

The Christ-In Culture is a podcast that begins the discussion in which we recognize that our human desires draw us deeper into a relationship with Christ. Through this open dialogue we attempt to show that our culture is a manifestation of our longing for Christ even in the seemingly small and mundane aspects of everyday life. Using primarily sources of apparently secular media we hope to foster within others a familiarity in actively participating in this discussion in their daily lives. Thoughts and opinions are our own and do not necessarily portray the teachings of the Catholic Church or the Diocese of Galveston-Houston.
