Pop Culture Piety
I am a priest in the Diocese of Calgary, serving the wonderful people of Holy Cross, Calgary. I watch reality television, I drink Starbucks coffee, and I read celebrity gossip columns. I am also a magician and often use magic tricks to teach the children at church the lessons of the Bible. I believe that God is present in intricacy of our lives, and thus I believe that Pop Culture can provide intriguing lessons, examples, and challenges for our life of faith.
