Jeremiah Lightyear?

I love the transformation that Buzz Lightyear goes through in the original Toy Story Buzz has to come to grips with the fact that he's not the 'Buzz Lightyear' but a 'Buzz Lightyear' action figure.

God said to Jeremiah:
Before I shaped you in the womb,
I knew all about you.
Before you saw the light of day,
I had holy plans for you:
A prophet to the nations--
that's what I had in mind for you

- Jeremiah 1:5

Buzz, like Jeremiah, was a created being. A being given as a gift, given as a blessing. I wonder if we need to wrestle with that the way Buzz did.

Anyone up for watching Toy Story again?

- Peace

We really need to watch more movies together. When I watch cartoons they don't have any theological implications for me. It must be interesting to be able to reflect on things in that way.

Thanks man, but this connection came from Men's breakfast and looking at those verses and Peterson's Run With the Horses.
