Please don’t take offense at this title. As I shared a couple of weeks ago, I recently told an adapted Tinker Bell story at our church women’s organization annual coffee. In working through the ins and outs of the performance, it occurred to me that the story did, in fact, demonstrate numerous Scriptural principles. Some of you probably pooh-poohed such an idea. I thought I’d share a little pixie dust and help you understand what I mean. This is the handout that I gave the ladies to help make the connection between Tinker Bell and our Christian walk as Episcopal Church Women.
Scriptural Principles Demonstrated in The Secret Of The Wings
Because we are Christians and know that our “magic” comes from God and not some mythical pixie dust tree, here are some Scripture verses that apply to our Pixie Hollow tale!
Two are better than one, because they have a good return on their labor: if either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
1 Peter 4:8-10
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in various forms.
I hope this helps illuminate the pixie dust tree for you!
