Depictions of Religion in Popular Culture

Sunday, August 26

Rev. Nate Nims

Waterloo First United Methodist Church


In the United States, religion and pop culture frequently exchange interpretive feedback. From Jewish authors of comic books creating heroes to fight WWII, to churches planning sermons and services around movies and TV shows, religion has influenced pop culture just as pop culture has influenced religion. Pastor Nims will take us on an exploration of the good, the bad, and the ugly of religious pop culture and pop culture religion in the United States.
