Napoleon Dynamite


On Sunday, I went to church with my friend's hostfamily.
They had a summer special event and on that day, a pastor talked using a movie.
The movie was "Napoleon Dynamite".
I watched the movie with my friend before going to church.
It was absolutely comedy and I laughed.
But I was wondering how the pastor would talk using it.
So, I was so curious about his speech.

He picked up 3 characters which are Uncle Rico, Brother Kip and Napoleon.
To be brief, we shouldn't cling past honor like Uncle Rico and look forward.
And we can have hope for the future unlike Brother Kip.
Also, Napoleon said he didn't have any talent but we have gifts which God gave to each us.

I tend to underestimate myself and think often like Napoleon.
But as I wrote before, when just only making something in art classes, I can accept myself.
In this meaning, I can agree with what the pastor said.
However, this movie is funny and I couldn't imagine that it includes a great lesson like this.
