About

What is Popsickle?

Popsickle is a blog published by Swing the Sickle that explores pop culture and Christianity. Our purpose is to engage Christians in the task of transforming culture. Weekly, in-depth articles will answer the question, “How is Christianity relevant to culture?” Links to the best art around the web and interviews with Christian artists will demonstrate how others are living out their faith.

Why is the blog called Popsickle? Did you just misspell popsicle?

Swing the Sickle, the ministry that publishes Popsickle, gets its name from Joel 3:13, “Swing the Sickle, for the harvest is ripe.” We combined the pop from pop culture and the sickle from Swing the Sickle to form Popsickle, a spiritually-enriching treat!
