Origami Elephants - October 17, 2014

Demons are the New Zombies

Demons are the New Zombies

Just in time for Halloween (and the Baylor Film & Faith Symposium!), Bryne and JR. investigate the new "it" monster: Demons. From possession in popular culture to exorcising pastors, we ask how demons function in our world, and how we can respond to stories and experiences of possession.

From Series: "Origami Elephants Season 1"

Origami Elephants celebrates the tension between beauty and certainty. Hosts Bryne Lewis and JR. Forasteros tackle the elephants in the room - the topics we either avoid or fight about. Bryne, JR. and their guests choose instead to investigate the elephants, to let them draw us together rather than divide.
