Pop Culture Piety

Pop Culture is everywhere.  It is implicit in what we read, what we watch, where we shop, even our choice of what brand of coffee to drink.  Given this, Christ’s call to be ‘in the world, but not of the world’ can sometimes seem daunting to us. This blog will explore various topics within Popular Culture, and how we are called to live out our faith and ministry in these murky and ever shifting waters.


Topic Guide:
Kyle Norman
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.
