SPIRITUAL THEMES

20.jpg (68 K)While we don’t get strong glimpses of it, we get some glimpse of the importance of faith, even to those who are among the “worst” that society has to offer. After one character who has made numerous sacrifices at bringing people together, and at befriending one who no one seems to care about dies, we see that the first thing placed on that individuals casket is a Holy Bible. We see others moved by that sign of love by placing the very things on the casket that means the most to them. From a coaches whistle, to a photo of a dear friend, others come to understand the concept of laying down their lives for others.

It took great sacrifice and undue death to help those individuals see the importance of love and serving each other, but they finally get it. The filmmakers also understand the importance of faith, immediately after the burial scene is the Norman Greenbaum song Spirit in the Sky. Personally I like the Kentucky Headhunters version better, but this song is a reminder to the audience that something awaits each individual after death. There is certainly an afterlife and the memories of the individual is not the only place that person will live on. The song indicates that there is a Spirit in the Sky, and as the song says; “I’ve got a friend in Jesus.”
