Brendan Prout joins us on this episode, he’s a worship leader and pastor and part of the committee which organizes and runs the San Diego Comic-Con International, the massive annual celebration of all things geek and pop- culture. This interview was recorded on location at Comic-Con.
In this interview we dig into the following topics:
- How pop-culture art & stories reflect underlying themes of faith.
- How to use our love of pop-culture to be an ambassador to our neighbors.
- How to connect your love of the popular arts and culture with your local congregation.
- How to translate your love of pop-culture for the uninitiated.
- Responding to challengers that say faith and geek culture are irreconcilable.
- How to balance the desire for excellence in our craft with our own fallibility.
