I planned on writing about Think Christian from last week, but having read their “Pop Culture Primer“, I was even more excited to write about Think Christian and here’s one of the reasons why:
Think Christian is for the devout faithful who are also fans of popular culture. In music and movies, television and video games, we seek to find – in the words of the Apostle Paul – “whatever is true, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable.” Our task as a digital magazine is to consider how popular culture and its cultivators interact with God’s story, and we do this with grace, appreciation, and discernment.About Us, Pop Culture Primer – Think Christian
I love this approach for so many reasons, (1) it makes the connection between faith and popular culture, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but a connection that I believe makes it possible to bridge the gap between faith and pop culture; (2) this approach shifts the focus back to God and God’s story; and (3) R-E-S-P-E-C-T, at the end of the day not everyone is going to agree, but through it all, we can respectfully agree to disagree.
Now that we have a little bit of a introduction into Think Christian, here’s what I’m loving so far:
I first discovered Think Christian or TC, through their podcast, starting off with the episode “A Theology of Star Wars (The Ride of Skywalker, The Mandalorian)”
I really need to have a discussion with my husband because he’s opened a can of worms since introducing me to Star Wars. But back to the podcast, as a whole I thoroughly enjoyed it. Episodes are between 30 – 45 minutes in length – which is perfect for me, especially when I’m at work and I want to listen to podcasts ranging in topics/interests.
Secondly, I love the podcast because it’s not pretentious. It’s not trying to hard to shove Christianity down your throat – which is perfect for someone who may not be a believer. I’m telling you these podcasts got me thinking – like for real, to the point that I’ve taken some of those questions to prayer because I need a level of revelation that only God can provide.
TC gets the digital magazine concept right and they do it well. The layout is fantastic and overall design is great. All you need is time to explore – take a look at their EBOOKS, read some of their articles, this is a website that you’ll most likely come back to. Check out the link below:
