The United Methodist Church. While the film The Shack is an adaptation of the controversial, best selling 2. Canadian author William P. Young, viewers can find comfort in the story, say United Methodist clergy. The Shack can be a powerful metaphor for understanding Gods desire to offer us healing in times of trial, doubt, and unspeakable suffering, says the Rev. Matt Rawle, lead pastor at Asbury United Methodist Church in Bossier City, Louisiana. The authors depiction of the Trinity should not be an issue with United Methodists who have long been comfortable with women in leadership, says retired elder Rev. Christy Thomas. In the film, Mack portrayed by Sam Worthington tries to recover from a deep grief resulting from a terrible tragedy in his family. This grief severely threatens Macks faith, which is already on shaky ground after years of challenging God. Rawle is a firm believer that works such as The Shack, which integrate pop culture with Christian faith, can make Jesus more accessible and encourage discussions. Although the film presents an unorthodox view of the Trinity, it would be shortsighted to see the story as heretical or blasphemous. In fact, using this cultural offering as a conversation starter may help those who are suffering find a language to share their grief and begin the healing process, says Rawle. Rawle is referring to the controversy surrounding the authors and films non biblical depiction of the Trinity Papa, portrayed by African American and Academy Award winning actress Octavia Spencer Jesus, portrayed by Avraham Aviv Alush, an Israeli actor of Tunisian heritage and Sarayu, the physical manifestation of the Holy Spirit, portrayed by Japanese actress Sumire Matsubara. Its important to note that The Shack is not meant as a theological treatise, but rather a record of a journey to find healing from the worst tragedy that a parent can experience, says the Rev. Christy Thomas, a retired elder in The United Methodist Church.

The author cant do that and neither can anyone else. One should watch the film with an understanding that all language about and knowledge of God is necessarily limited and metaphorical. We humans dont have the ability to fully take in the Presence of God, says Thomas. We can only describe it in words of our experiences. 12 Universal Laws Of Success Herbert Harris Pdf Editor. Those experiences are inevitably limited and interpretive. The way Young depicts the Trinity may look problematic, especially the use of a black female as Papa, i. God the Father, but the Scriptures make it clear that the nature of God transcends gender classifications.
