The Next Faithful Step
Week 8: Family
CF565: Empowering the People of God
This week instead of a case study, I am going to ask you to watch a movie called “The Incredibles.” It is an animated movie that you should find rather easily on Netflix or Amazon.
Instead of writing about a case study, I want you to respond to the movie. There are a number of themes in the movie. So you can pick whichever one you want.
Just as a reminder, we have talked so far in this class about:
* Role Conflict
* and now this week, Family
I would argue that all of those themes are present in this movie. Pick one (ONE) and write your usual paper. Reminder: your papers tend to work better when you name ahead of time the (a) presenting problem; (b) the deeper issue; and (c) the theological issue.
