Skating – CB Part Three
Which brings up reason #3 as to why A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS is the best holiday special ever.
Charlie does some good exploration.
He could choose to just sit and moan (or “share the truth in love” – thanks Omar) and feel sorry for himself – but instead he seeks help.
Now Lucy may not be the wisest choice, but really, where can a five year old go to get psychiatric help for only a nickel?
(I see Lucy as being akin Job’s friends – trying to be helpful, but keep getting in their own way.)
And while Charles Schulz has some fun with the easy answers, he lets Lucy stumble upon a really good one:
“The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone.” -GENESIS 2:18
Sure, there are times when you need a little space, or even a bit of “alone with G-d” time. Heck, the kid who’s birthday we close banks for sought a little alone time every morning.
But it isn’t good to be in life alone.
Seek community. Yeah, Lucy, maybe I could do with a little involvement.
Just my thoughts,
