What's Gotten Into Us? The Baylor Panel Audio

What\'s Gotten Into Us? The Baylor Panel Audio

Bryne and JR. are joined by Clay Morgan of the StoryMen and Mikey Fissel of Reel World Theology to conduct a panel at the Baylor IFL Conference on Faith and Film. We explore the nature of possession films, and what they say about the Church and contemporary spirituality. A Q&A follows.

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.
