I’ve long wanted to write a theology of The Lego Movie. It’s an adventurous tale of “The Special” (Emmet) who must discover what makes him unique on his quest to save the universe. I don’t get time to watch many movies, and when I do it’s almost always a children’s movie (such is the life with two young ones at home). But I’ve seen The Lego Movie and I love it. Funny, insightful, and entertaining, it’s something that makes two hours of my time worth it.
And while I debate writing a full review, and perhaps a fuller look at the theology of the movie, I find this clip below to pretty much sum up how I feel pastoring most days. The looks given by the “master builders” is something I see regularly on a Sunday morning.
So, for your viewing pleasure, here is my level of pastoral competency.
