The Passion of Sean Gaffney

God bless Sean Gaffney.

He’s been hosting auditions for his church drama group.

Seems like a simple enough job, doesn’t it?

Oh, no, no, no.

Judging auditions is a very complicated job. And judging them for a church drama group can be hell on earth.

Sean’s story will be familiar to many of you who have struggled with being an artist in the church.

Here’s the riveting Part One

… and he’s just posted Part Two, in which he dares to consider what the Bible has to say about all this. “What,” you might ask, “does the Bible have to do with drama auditions?”

And Sean will show you.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
