One subject that I came across on the Centennial Institute homepage relates to Hollywood and the influence it holds over much of our society and culture. On September 9th, Dr. James Leininger will be speaking on this topic. I believe it can be a tough and slippery slope for many Christians to navigate. We want to be in tune with societal norms, but we don’t want to conform. We want to reach others through avenues that they are comfortable with, but we don’t want to be viewed as “mainstream” and essentially become “one of the guys”. By holding steadfast to our values and our faith, I think we can impact this world through such avenues like Hollywood, or sports, or music, etc. We need to be strong in our convictions and understand we will encounter challenges along the way. But with the Lord as our Rock, we can become agents of change for His Kingdom, and that is exciting to think about!
