#7: Spirited Away

Technicolor Jesus is movie-talk for pastors, preachers, and Sunday School teachers.

In this episode, Matt and Adam discuss what Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away has to do with the lectionary texts for April 10, the third week in Easter.

Matt explains what a bathing river spirit has to do with Paul's conversion, Adam asks "What's in a name?" and we both marvel at Miyazaki's rich imaginative vision of childhood. 

So pull over the car and enter that creepy old theme park as we discuss what Spirited Away might mean for your ministry.
