I haven't blogged in a while. That's because nothing has been going on. We had our third out of five interviews scheduled for last week, but our social worker's dad passed away. We are still reading the two required books. One book is written from a Christian perspective, the other is neutral or perhaps secular.
In the chapter titled, "Claiming Narratives" there is a section on Disney movies. The following is an excerpt:
Disney movies can be a wonderful starting point for discussing bigger life issues. When my daughter has expressed fear of the necessary mean character, be it witch, queen, or stepmother, I explain that without evil there can be no happy ending. Without a nasty character how would we measure the character of the good one? In life good things happen and bad things, there are good people and bad. There can't be one without the other."
Woah! That doesn't sound too secular to me. Kind of sounds a lot like the real world, God's sovereignty, and why we have evil in this world.
