Welcome to the February 28, 2009 edition of ‘Pop Goes the Gospel’. The intersection of God and culture. A confluence of everyday life and the extraordinary. The crossroads of heaven and earth. Each month we offer up a select group of posts from across cyberspace that points us heavenward. This month’s edition is smaller than past editions due to some faulty links from those who submitted material for this edition. If you submitted an article and do not see it here this is probably the reason it was excluded. Anyway, less is more starting with this month’s feature article. Take time to read and comment on each article and by the end of your journey you will have been enriched. Now on with the carnival.
