Glee 3D Movie – A note to the church

Standard

I saw the Glee 3D movie today and it was great. It taught me a lesson on how we as the Church need to be inclusive of those who are different in looks, life and talents. Too many times I hear of kids who aren’t made to feel welcome in church because they are not what traditionally we see on Sunday’s (or Saturday’s for our SDA friends). God is love, we are to love one another as Christ loves us, Jesus love the little children of the world. The music of Glee is the platform in which a diverse group of young people light up the world with their talent. They gain acceptance and a purpose in their lives. We as the church need to be more like Will Schuster the leader of the New Directions glee club who brings people in to do the work of making a difference in the lives of those who have a story to share, a song to sing a dance to dance.

Glee 3D Movie – A Commentary

Standard

I admit I am not the biggest Gleek but I appreciate this show for how it shows how a diverse group of individuals can come together as a group to do amazing performances and light up the lives of many people. Glee has done much to inspire kids to step out and perform their hearts out.

This movie gave the cast a big stage in a big crowd to sing the songs that have made this show the success it is. It also had a deeper purpose on how Glee has inspired kids to embrace their quirks, differences and to use their talents. Performing arts is a important part of our culture and Glee is making a statement that everyone needs a stage to show what they can do. It also helps folks uncover hidden talents that need to be shared with the world. The movie explored many themes of acceptance and empowerment of people who would find their voice.

Everyone will enjoy this movie. The performances were super. Rock solid music and vocals make this a worthwhile movie to see. Its a great companion to the TV show. I enjoyed this very much and most certain to get it when it comes out on Blu Ray.

A Important Back To School Message

Standard

If you see someone who is struggling to make friends or being bullied because he/she doesn’t have many friends or because they are shy or not as pretty or not dressed in the “in” clothes– Step Up. Say HI or at least SMILE at them in the hallway. You never know what that person might be facing outside of school.

Your small kindness can make a BIG difference in someone’s life!
