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

Signed, Sealed, Delivered Christmas movie to arrive in time for holidays. The new film will debut Sunday, November 23 at, 9:00 PM (ET) on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Hopefully, that’s a good sign for the renewal of the charming Hallmark Channel series which created and produced by Martha Williamson (Touched by an Angel) and stars Eric Mabius, Kristin Booth, Crystal Lowe and Geoff Gustafson. The film will guest star Marion Ross (Happy Days) and Rob Estes.  Anyway, here’s the plot: When the postal detectives discover an urgent letter written to God, they delay their own travel plans to help a little girl who’s mother’s life hangs in the balance on Christmas Eve.

About the film’s premiere on the new Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, Hallmark Channel’s Executive Vice President of Programming Michelle Vicary says “Because viewers expect quality holiday family programming from us, we asked Martha Williamson…to write and Executive Produce a Christmas movie for us, which exceeded our expectations. Her Signed Sealed Delivered for Christmas is so unique, we wanted to showcase it on the newly rebranded Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, where it’s destined to be discovered as a modern classic.” Great. Now please renew the show.
