Greenleaf is a show filled with drama and conflict, much of which is an accurate, if hyped, depiction of what really goes on behind closed doors in many black churches and black families. However, the secrets and sins of the Greenleaf family are not all that goes on in any church or family. A lot of good takes place within the four walls of churches and families. It would be good to see some of this depicted as well.
While it is true that scandal draws eyeballs, scandal doesn’t do much for a person’s soul. It would be heartening to many Christian viewers to see the church and Christian people sometimes portrayed in a good light. It is not about trying to make the church look good, but rather it is about having a faithful depiction of a group of people who do both good and bad in the real world.
