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

The timing is kinda interesting.  While Oprah Winfrey’s interview  with Lance Armstrong airing tonight on OWN is making big headlines, a faith-based film set in the world of cycling has just hit the DVD market.  The Potential Inside, from director Scott Curlee (a former competitive biker who executive produced, co-wrote the script and stars), tells the story of a pro cyclist who finds his life at a crossroad following the death of his daughter. He learns that winning a bike race isn’t everything and that there is no greater power than that of God’s forgiveness. Check out the trailer:
