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

*"Unashamed" – The film featuring Christian comedian Chonda Pierce plays in area theatres at 7pm Tues. May 7. The comedic yet inspirational film highlights the bold faith of several well known figures with interviews featuring singer Danny Gokey, Michael Tait, and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. There are also segments of Pierce's uplifting comedy. Among West Michigan theatres showing the film: Celebration Cinema locations at GR North, South and Rivertown; Carousel 16 in Grand Haven, Goodrich Holland 7, and Kalamazoo 10. Tickets are $14-$15.
