Interview (155.6 MB)
Dr. Sandra Yocum, Chanel Winston
University Professor of Faith and Culture
Dr. Sandra Yocum
In this thoughtful and moving interview, Dr. Daria Graham gives us an eye-opening tour of the multiple pathways in which faith and culture are related to one another. Emphasizing the often hidden power that culture can exert over faith in a church setting, Dr. Graham draws our attention to the need for a more thoughtful consideration of the relationship between church and culture, faith and culture, church and faith. In a beautiful manner, Dr. Graham describes how she understands her own faith: they are the glasses which are the first thing she reaches for upon waking. Faith and culture engage in a mutual performance that displays that which is most important to us, and those characteristics of our lives, routines, and worship which we may not often think about.
