Culture. It is this weird sometimes nebulous, sometimes very precise reality. There can be cultures within culture and there can even be times when culture seems universal. It’s funny how we talk about culture. When we are in elementary school culture is peer pressure. When we get to middle school and high school it’s what’s cool. And when we become adults we just reference culture as “what is”.
Typically, I don’t pay too much attention to cultural hits (music, songs, movies, and TV shows). However, I do find quite often that one item tends to rise above the rest as “the” culturally hot item. The current hot hit…13 Reasons Why. This show came out not long ago and already almost every student knows about it and a large majority have already binge watched every episode. For this reason alone, I think it wise for every parent, teacher, church kid, youth, college volunteer to understand what 13 Reasons Why is and at least consider reading this response by Megan Cullip.
As always enjoy and be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!
