Week 8: Family

CF565: Empowering the People of God

This week instead of a case study, I am going to ask you to watch a movie called “The Incredibles.” It is an animated movie that you should find rather easily on Netflix or Amazon.

Instead of writing about a case study, I want you to respond to the movie. There are a number of themes in the movie. So you can pick whichever one you want.

Just as a reminder, we have talked so far in this class about:
* Health
* Role Conflict
* Work
* Money
* Vocation
* and now this week, Family

I would argue that all of those themes are present in this movie. Pick one (ONE) and write your usual paper. Reminder: your papers tend to work better when you name ahead of time the (a) presenting problem; (b) the deeper issue; and (c) the theological issue.
