Hello to our BLJ media friends!   As the film opened this weekend in a lot of new cities, we’re coming to you, as supporters of BLJ, to help us with a new campaign – perhaps in blogs or news bytes.

As many of you know, this is the first Christian film ever where you can grab a diverse group of friends and acquaintances and experience meaningful conversation and debate. It’s the first time a Christian film hasn’t given you all the answers.

The dialogue that #BlueLikeJazz has ignited is remarkable and wide-spread, and here’s one small example:

This story shows that this film connects on so many diverse levels.  Who do you think would find themselves somewhere in this movie?:
1. Someone from your small group?
2. Someone from your work/school?
3. That guy/girl you always see in the coffee shop?
4. A college student?
5. Your friend who stopped going to church?
-What kind of conversation would you have after the film?
-TAKE 5 people to see Blue Like Jazz this week and find out.

When you do, please share your story at take5bluelikejazz.com
