EVENTSWest Michigan Christian News writer Terry DeBoer surveys the landscape for the area's faith-based arts and entertainment events over the coming month. Here are three highlights for April:

"Chonda Pierce: Enough" – The one-night-only movie theater presentation featuring the Christian comedienne is set for 7 p.m. Tues. April 25 at several West Michigan theaters. Pierce, who was widowed several years ago, addresses difficult issues in her comedic stories while pointing to the God of faith as the ultimate hope. The film will be shown in Grand Rapids at Celebration Cinema North on East Beltline NE, Celebration Rivertown in Grandville, Holland 7 on Waverly Rd. in Holland, and Cinema Carousel 16 on Grand Haven Rd. in Muskegon. Tickets are $12, group discounts available. Ticket link and film preview at www.chondamovie.com

*Sarah Arthur and Erin F. Wasinger – The Christian authors speak and sign copies of their new book "A Year of Small Things: Radical Faith for the Rest of Us" (Brazos Press) at 7 p.m. Thurs. April 27 at Baker Book House, 2768 E. Paris Ave. SE, Grand Rapids. The authors (with their husbands and small children) tell of their yearlong experiment trying to implement spiritual practices of radical faith (some of them from "ancient monasticism") into their suburban lives.
