Media.Faith.Culture Parents 101 | May 21

Screen shot 2013-04-17 at 11.54.10 AMCSPA, in collaboration with Monsignor Paul Baxter School, hosted Brett Ullman's Media.Faith.Culture 101 on Tuesday, May 21 at 7:00 p.m. 

Our World calls to us through our ipods, magazines, movies and television sets. Our Faith suggests our lives ought to reflect values and sentiments that often conflict with popular culture. Our God wants us to fit in, to share His love with others. How do we exist in an overwhelmingly media-saturated culture and what is our response to it? Rather than being involuntarily shaped by pop culture, how do we affect it?
