IT WAS WITH great interest that I read the reflections that were part of “In the Image of God.” As an actor I know there is too little that depicts the life of the faithful in the theater or on film.

I hope to address this. My goal is to produce a series of scripts that will be the basis of a television series about the lives of professional and lay ministers. For purposes of comparison, I see an ensemble show along the lines of ER or NYPD Blue that deals with the challenges, victories, conflicts, and ambiguities that confront people of faith on a daily basis.

Thank you for your excellent magazine that challenges me and encourages my creativity in every issue.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
