Colossians and popular culture: During Bible Month, June 2019, Our Sunday services will be looking at the letter to the Colossians. It will be of interest to look at a series of youtube ‘podcasts’ from the Methodist Learning Network - East Central, in which Prof. Clive Marsh considers the book of Colossians alongside items of popular culture. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5VC78gPxlxkc96qS8fYKMA
