"If God had a Facebook page would he accept friend requests from saints or prostitutes?” So asks Juliani, a Kenyan Christian hip hop artist. His music represents a slice of contemporary Christianity in Kenya especially as it is experienced, expressed, and understood among youth, who constitute the great majority of this very young nation. This workshop will explore some of the ways youth express and understand their Christian faith and how it relates to the contemporary social, economic, and political realities facing their generation in Kenya today. 

Presented at the 2014 Calvin Symposium on Worship
