Storm Reid, the budding Christian actress who’s starring in the Disney film “A Wrinkle in Time,” is receiving support from one of the largest megachurches in the United States.
Reid, 14, visited Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, last week where she shared her journey in faith with the congregation led by Pastor Joel Osteen. Associate Pastor John Gray was on hand to moderate a Q&A with Reid and asked her how she’s able to maintain her faith while pursuing her dreams in Hollywood.
“My life is centered around God and faith. I wear a mustard seed every day,” Reid told Gray and the congregation at Lakewood Church. “I don’t know if I’ll be acting in five years and I don’t even know if I’ll be in L.A. in five years. But I know if I have faith in a mustard seed that God will move mountains, and I know the best is yet to come.”
With Reid standing by his side, the pastor urged people to support her and said he was praying they would do so by going to the theater to see “A Wrinkle in Time.”
“We support whatever we want to support. But there are moments where we lovingly suggest the body of Christ get behind something that is bigger than ourselves. And when you, as a young woman of faith, can stand here and boldly say, ‘I rock a mustard seed bracelet and God is the center of my life,’ we want to celebrate you [and] your gift,” said Gray, who will be the senior pastor at Redemption Church in Greenville, South Carolina, starting in May.
“And I’m praying that we will support ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ [and] our families go out, it’s a great family film,” he added.
