Faith, Media & Culture

Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture.

A 336-year-old hymn is amazingly relevant today. Carolyn Rossi Copeland, the executive producer of the new Broadway musical Amazing Grace,  emailed me “The president singing Amazing Grace was so affirming that our show is happening at the right moment.” Certainly, the world can use more of the sort of forgiveness and amazing grace the people of  Charleston’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church have shown in the face of horrific evil. They are a living example of the Bible verse “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:21).

Encourage one another and build each other up – 1 Thessalonians 5:11
