Connie Sellecca, Jeff Conaway and Deborah Tucker will be visiting the Linwood Brethren Church Sunday by way of the silver screen. The stars are cast members of the movie "Eye of the Storm."

Television journalist Tom Edwards (Conaway) and his producer,

Patricia "Pete" Peterson (Sellecca), have just returned from the Persian Gulf War. They face the demanding task of keeping the ratings of their TV program high with postwar news.

Edwards' idea is to "trash" the faith of returning servicemen and women by asking them what role God plays in their lives now that the war has ended. "Is he out in the open, or has he been put back in the closet?" Edwards wants to ask.

Since his wife's death, Edwards has immersed himself in his work and is having trouble relating to his daughter, Jill (Tucker). His juggling of career and relationships has created his own inner struggle, a personal war within himself as well as being at war with her.

"Eye of the Storm" is produced by World Wide Pictures, the motion picture ministry of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. It will be presented at 7 p.m. at the Linwood Brethren Church, 575 Mc Kinstry's Mill Road, Linwood.

Information: 775-7382.
