Faith, values and the Oscars

Faith, values and the Oscars

Last night I asked on Twitter whether anyone was working on the essay about the theological significance of the red carpet coverage of the Academy Award for today’s Cafe. As of this afternoon, no one, to my knowledge, has come forward. So consider this an open thread on the faith and values angles of last night’s Oscars telecast and the attendant media scrum. I’d like to kick us off with an arresting observation or probing question–something about The Tree of Life, or Moneyball and the Church of Baseball, but I’ve got nothing. Did faith rear its head?

For the record, I believe that the Tree of Life was an amazing achievement and was far more intelligible yet thought-provoking than I thought it might be.


LOL … Monday is a day off for me this week and I am working on my post-Oscar blog as we speak. Stay tuned!

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
