Hollywood God, the Closing Credits

This Sunday is the last week in our Hollywood God series at CrossWay.  It’s been a lot of fun, but it’ll be kind of nice to catch my breath because the preparation each week has taken a ton of time.  The following Sunday, March 9, we’re beginning a two-week series on family.  Pastor John Coleman from the Gathering Tree is preaching the first message, about parenting.  The following week is about marriage.

Hollywood God has been pretty well received so far.  I had no idea what to expect!  It seems to me that our whole worship service has been kicked up a notch during this series.  I’d love to see that momentum keep growing!  It’s been a real learning experience, that’s for sure.  One thing that’s been a lot of fun is getting to use my training as an English major to dissect each week’s film and discover where it overlaps with our story and the story of Scripture.

Hollywood God 2009 is already tentatively scheduled for the month before Easter.  It’s kind of cool the way the series coincides with the Oscars, which was unintentional.

  1. It’s been great, Nathan, and I’m so glad you had the idea to make it an annual thing. I think that’s one way to continue to improve on an idea or theme–if we do it more than once, it gives us the opportunity to make it new and fresh each time.

    Thanks for all the hard work you’ve put in to it–there’s TONS of behind-the-scenes (no pun intended) work that goes unseen by human eyes. We appreicate you!!

  2. Thanks Christi. Your husband did most of the behind the scenes stuff! That’s a good point about continuing something to improve it. Pretty thought provoking, actually, because it’s true about a lot of things.

    Hopefully painting is one of them.
