My favorite article in this month’s Salvo is an interview with Ken Wales, ( actor and producer of films – Amazing Grace, Christy the Revenge of the Pink Panther…)
When asked if her ever felt “ostracized” because of his beliefs- he answered:
“No, I’ve never felt ostracized because of my beliefs as a Christian. I think the most important thing is that I laid down the groundwork as a growing professional, beginning from the time I started as an actor, in my acting apprenticeship under contract to MGM, on into doing production work after my 4 years as a cinema student at USC, and then working with Blake Edwards. So the important thing was to grow professionally and proficiently. I don’t think there’s a problem with faith when you also exhibit competence and excellence. How you do your job is important. It matters how kind you are to associates you work with, how you care about them and are willing to help. Perhaps one of the most important things is really just to pitch in when things go wrong, even if it’s not your problem. The key thing is to be well prepared in terms of you profession and then exemplify your Christian principles in the way you carry that out.”
Whew….good words for the worker!
