Writers Strike

Writers unite!

The Writers Guild of America went on strike early in November.

Members felt they deserved more royalty money for material distributed over the Internet and other online distribution methods, such as “video on demand.”

Although I don’t have time to watch a lot of TV, I’m addicted to the dramas CSI - Las Vegas and Criminal Minds.
This fall I added Chuck, a comedy, to my must-see ROTFL
entertainment list. And I have this habit of watching Leno’s monologue before settling in for a night’s rest.

I have to admit, after a summer of reruns, I wasn’t excited about the possibility of having them return. I look forward to seeing fresh episodes of my favorite series.

But, I still support the writers.

They’re not in the spotlight like the actors and directors, so it’s easy to forget how important they are. Writers are the creative foundation for all forms of entertainment.

Your favorite actor wouldn’t have the words to woo his love interest – he wouldn’t even know who to express the words to – without a script in front of him.

It’s easy to assume that the late night talk show host has written his own jokes or monologue. In most cases, not so.

The strike has reminded me of how important we all are, regardless of the job, position, or title we carry.

Do you ever walk into a public restroom and wonder about the person who replaced the toilet paper or the soap in the dispenser? It may seem like trivial type of work – but it sure can be frustrating to find the rolls empty of paper and the dispensers void of soap.

We’re ALL needed.

“Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully” Romans 12: 4-8

God doesn’t judge us – or love us more if we have a more prestigious job than the next person.

We’re all important in His eyes.
