One evening recently, my wife and I went to the local drive-in theatre. It has been a tradition for us to get there at least once every summer. It’s always a double-feature. So you are bound to get one good movie out of the experience.
And, if you are fortunate, have a nice evening under the stars. Which we did.
The movie was Christopher Robin. Which is the re-uniting of Winnie the Pooh and his friends with a grown-up Christopher Robin. It was very well done.
Without going into the details of the film, let me just say what really moved me. It was the relationship between Robin and Pooh. The deep love between a talking, stuffed animal and a man.
The innocence of the relationship between Christopher and Pooh caused me think about the nature of Heaven. Of the innocence and purity that awaits us there. Of the joy, the beauty and intimacy we will know with the Lord and with each other.
