Debut of Touched by an Angel
On this day TV show “Touched by an Angel” debuted and aired its last show on April 27, 2003. Created by John Masius and produced by Martha Williamson, the series followed Monica, an angel, (Roma Downey) as she brought hope to the hopeless. She was assisted by Tess (Della Reese) and Andrew (John Dye), the angel of death. When Williamson signed on to the project, the show was much different than it actually turned out. She described the series as portraying angels as “recycled dead people with power over life and death." She told CBS that she was a Christian and could only portray the angels in a way that she felt was true and respectful.

The Cosby Show Premieres
Back in the early ‘80s, TV pretty much declared that the family sitcom was dead. Bill Cosby fought against that sentiment and created The Cosby Show that aired for the first time on this day in 1984. Focusing on the affluent Huxtable family, Cosby showed America a different type of African American family while still seeming very relatable. The show did very well and stayed on the top of television ratings for eight years. TV Guide called it TV’s biggest hit in the 1980s.

Just say no.
|Poster for "Fight Church" (Film Harvest)|
“The first time I ever watched Mixed Martial Arts was on television at a church-sponsored fight night party that my brother-in-law had invited me to while I was visiting family in Michigan,” says Bryan Storkel in a Daily Beast article he wrote earlier this week. “I sat through the first two or three fights, but I couldn’t stick with it. There was too much blood for my liking and in spite of the organized structure and rules; it still seemed a bit too barbaric for me.”
Storkel is co-director of Fight Church, a new documentary released this week that centers on the topic of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) within the Christian community. Not just Christians who fight, but also pastors who have built their churches and ministries around MMA. If this sounds odd to you, than you are not aware of how popular the sport has become over the years. It might also sound odd for a person initially repulsed by the sport would actually dedicate years of his life to capture it in a documentary, but that is kind of guy Storkel is.
