There are many themes found in this movie which are central to our Christian faith. Every kid can relate to characters in the movie and through these different characters, we will be looking at these different themes.
We are going to be looking at the theme of fear versus love which runs as a thread throughout the entire movie. Through the story, kids will understand better the concept of fear versus love and ultimately how this relates to our Christian walk where we need to know that perfect love casts out all fear.
We‟ll also be looking at the fact that God is love and the great- est act of love was God sending Jesus as a sacrifice for all of us. This is the love which conquers all and when we know this and believe this, we realize how big a sacrifice it was and that because of this sacrificial love we get to live free.
Other themes we will be covering is that of being yourself and accepting others for who they are. We don‟t need to put on a face or pretend to be anyone we‟re not. God made us and He made us perfectly. The fact that it is impossible for God to make mistakes, means that nothing about us is a mistake and we need to celebrate our uniqueness.
We‟ll also dig deeper into the themes of friendship and knowing that you are never alone. God blesses us with friends and en- courages us to be good friends to others. Along with that, is the knowledge that He is the greatest friend ever and He will al- ways be right by our side through everything. His friendship with us gives us the perfect example of friendship and how we should then treat others who we call our friends.
