Tangled & theology

Last Friday while Anna, her Mom, and Serge went shopping, I took the kids to see Tangled.
Since I didn't find a lot of allurement in fairy tales as a child the story presented was new, except that as I watched the film I felt like I was watching a parable of the parables of scripture.  Of course it's not a perfect parable.  But the story arc of a beloved child, stolen away from her parents, the longing of her parents and searching for the child over the course of their life, is one that springs from the pages of scripture regarding God's passion for the fruit of his creation.  If you're interested in a film that's fun, even overcoming Disney's syrupy music, that's a parable of God's redeeming love, go see Tangled.
