reading the [biblical] text in a postmodern world

Prodigal is rehashing some theologising I did around Winnie the Pooh and reading the Bible. For those who are about to dismiss me as sacriligious (assuming you haven’t already:)), I was struck by the relationship between the inspiration of Biblical text and community memory in the Piglet Big movie.


“… As they [Piglet, Rabbit, Eeyore and Tiger] start a process of communal re-telling, so they find themselves in a process of communal re-living… As we tell the story, our lives are changed … Re-telling and re-living cannot be separated.”

For those interested in more, I did a sermon once on Bible Sunday, exploring Pooh, Piglet and reading the Bible.

Maybe we should show Piglets Big movie for a film:church at Opawa? And now I am eagerly awaiting Pooh’s Heffalump movie for more theological reflection ( Quick time promo here).
