Growing up, Katelyn and Roxy heard that living in a place like NYC was spiritually dangerous. But they’ve found the opposite is true.
Katelyn and Roxy talk about the messages they received from fellow Christians when they decided to move to NYC. They heard fear: that they’d lose their faith or be indoctrinated with secular progressive culture. What they found in NYC as Christians is more complex.
In this episode, hear from Professor Phillip Jenkins on the historic underpinnings of the city mouse/country mouse mutual distrust, and from the fantastic Rev. Dr. LaKeesha Walrond about her own NYC journey.
Then we call Roxy & Katelyn’s moms, Karen and Sharon.
This episode addresses deep-seated beliefs among evangelicals, about big cities, secular culture, and their neighbors.
