At the Movies: 80s Edition

The 80s were a cultural explosion as early decades had set the stage for a wide range of artistic expression and experimentation. Movie theaters and radio stations premiered less and less “serious art” in favor of massively popular blockbusters and top 40 hits. Many of today’s leaders were shaped by this decade. 80s art and music became the template and soundtrack of their lives. Younger generation too have embraced much of that decade as their own, even the acid washed jeans. Nearly 30 years later we want to take a look back at how 80s culture shaped us for better and worse, and understand how Jesus was moving then, now, and even thousands of years ago.
