Christians and Hollywood--a topic that intrigues me and, I hope, you too. This week I'm focusing on this topic by looking at two people who started organizations that offer screenwriting programs: Bryan Coley, founder and artistic director of Art Within (www.artwithin.org), and Barbara Nicolosi, co-founder and board member of Act One (www.actoneprogram.com). I wrote an article about Bryan and Barbara that appeared in the July/August issue of Today's Christian magazine. Here it is:
Materialism. Drugs. Infidelity. Narcissism. When Christians talk about Hollywood, we usually shake our heads and go on about how terrible it is. Because it seems so blatantly anti-Christian, we've written it off rather than embraced it as the true mission field it is.
At least two people, however, have caught God's vision for making a difference in Hollywood. While many in the church consider Hollywood hopeless, Bryan Coley and Barbara Nicolosi represent a growing number of Tinseltown insiders who offer the hope of Christ.
