After a short walk from the parking lot I clicked off my flashlight. Darkness raced around me in a split second.
The early morning was cool under a moonless night. Dark as pitch I could see innumerable stars overhead, but I could barely see the nose on my face.
Despite the darkness I could feel the cliff right in front of me.
The heat of a SoCal day slowly faded from the sky. Slowly, the chattering of children and adults ebbed as a projector flickered to life on a canvas screen suspended a dozen feet from the asphalt. A sea of people sat, posted up in canvas camping chairs, or sprawled on an astro-turf mat, watching with content expectancy.
Why have these people gathered?...
For our upcoming Outdoor Movie Night we’ll be enjoying Disney’s Big Hero 6 on the big screen under the stars. In the movie, robotics nerd Hiro Hamada discovers an inflatable health care robot Baymax created in the past by his older brother, Tedashi. After a terrible life-changing accident, Hiro and Baymax team up with four other nerds to save their hometown San Fransokyo from an evil super villain trying to take over with Hiro’s invention.
So you might be asking, what does a kid, a marshmallow robot and an evil super villain have to do with church?
