"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Galatians 4:4-7
But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.6 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. 

Where Wonder was a meditation on Kindness and Three Billboards was a meditation on Anger and Grief, and Get Out was a meditation on the horrors of Racism, Coco is a meditation on Family and Memory. While many of our church family will be at the Women's Retreat, the rest of us will be pondering the love and pain that comes through and in a family. Coco, even though it's a cartoon, does not shy away from the pain that comes from abandonment and the traditions that families adopt when they've been wounded. However, when families can reconcile and find hope through the pain, it is a picture on this earth of God's great family. Join us as we look at the film Coco to shed light on the love of our Father and the great bridge that he crossed to get to us.
