Episode 143: Colliding with Culture: Teaching our Kids to Ask the Next Question

Did you know that, according to a recent Barna study, only 4% of those who call themselves Christians hold to a Biblical Worldview? This episode will help you teach kids to question what they are being told, so that when their faith collides with culture, they can grow in their faith, not out of it. Kori & Lee discuss faith & culture collisions such as evolution, gender ideology, moral relativism, victimhood and YOLO. You’ll leave with some great conversation starters for your next kid convo!
