Faith Adjacent (The Series)

Faith Adjacent: Santa Claus

Today on Faith Adjacent, join us as we walk right down Santa Claus Lane to chat about that jolly old elf: Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, Santa Claus. Santa’s origin story is a mix of cultures and traditions, some more faith adjacent than others, but are Santa and Christianity really at odds with one another? In this episode, we separate man from myth to see what a fictitious Christmas character can teach us about honoring the reason for the season. **Disclaimer: If you have little ears that do not need a podcast host telling them secret insider information, you might want to wait before you listen in front of them.**
