In this inspiring and moving interview, Wayne Romo, a longtime university minister, describes his dynamic understanding of faith and culture, especially from the perspective of his faith as a child and his family upbringing in both the Hispanic and German cultures. Walking through everything from his family's musical endeavors as a child, santos and home altars, the question of thinking about becoming priest, blessings, and the faith of today's young people, we are brought to an understanding of faith and culture that is at once historically and socially situated, deeply familial, storied, and adaptive to new conditions in society and among young people.
