In a world of conflict, political upheaval, and a changing climate, humanity is looking for hope-- hope for a better world, for healing and reconciliation, for peace to grow. Humanity is looking for hope. Hollywood is full of influencers, creatives and innovators impacting society in transformative ways. Through its creative endeavors, Hollywood tells stories that make us think, make us laugh, make us cry, provoke action and remind us what really matters most. However, in recent years, Hollywood’s influence has gone beyond story-telling. Industry leaders and insiders have begun to rally around common causes such as anti-human trafficking, equal rights, climate change and refugee resettlement, and using their considerable influence to affect significant change for good. Hollywood is bringing hope. From its inception, God’s intention for the Church is to bring hope--hope for holistic reconciliation, healing restoration and real transformation for all of humanity.
