Friday Nights | 7:00 – 9:30 PM
This Friday at Whirlwind, we will be talking about the impact of popular media on our faith and worldview. We will be challenging each other to be more mindful of our media choices and less like mindless consumers.
Over the next few weeks, we will be applying a 3(D) Discernment Process (Discover, Discern, Decide). Click HERE for details on the Discernment Process.
For examples of songs and media through this discernment lens, click HERE.
