2017 Summer Series

the gospel according to pixar logo

June 13 - August 8, 2017

"Over the past fifteen years, Pixar has produced a remarkable body of work - films that speak in fresh terms about the reality of life and the complexities of the human heart - and made us laugh while doing so. These films are more than children's fare; they are the closest thing we have to modern-day folktales. And like many great folktales, Pixar uses monsters, fish, toys and other fantastical characters to touch winsomely on universal themes.

For Pixar, what makes a good story is character development. Rather than the dramatic events themselves,
the characters drive the plot, as they are changed by who and what they encounter. Their adventures, while always entertaining, serve more as interruptions in the protagonists' lives. Every Pixar movie features characters who are acted upon and transformed by some external force or event. So, it should come as no surprise that what Pixar does best is tell great stories that offer instruction on virtuous living, just like our very own Bible does for us as people of faith.

Think of some of the stories found within our Bible: Adam and Eve, Abraham, Jacob, the disciples! Think of how Jesus engaged people through the parables. He didn't get all preachy on them. Instead, he told them a story that had deeper meaning. The stories found within our Bible are stories that we can still relate to in our own lives…"

Join us in Fellowship Hall on Tuesday evenings to watch these Pixar movies together:

June 13: Wall-E
June 10: The Incredibles
June 27: Up!
July 18: Monsters, Inc.
July 25: Cars
August 8: Toy Story

Thanks once again to all who have accepted positions of leadership within Midway Christian Church.
