Posts Tagged ‘Easter Sunday’

When I was a kid, we all gathered around the television on Sunday nights and watch “The Wonderful World of Disney“. Every now and then, Walt Disney would introduce a show or pitch a product.

There was something magic about those nights.

Walt Disney’s ideas were all so new. His love for his product undeniable. If there was a new technology, Walt presented it on screen — humbly giving all the credit to the men and women who helped bring that new tech to life.

On Easter Sunday, I couldn’t help but to reflect on those days while my family gathered around the flat screen to watch the premiere of “The Chosen” Season Two.

Before the show began, the series creator, Dallas Jenkins appeared and talked the his show — just like Walt.

Dallas teased a new episode and pitched new things, singing “www dot the chosen gifts dot com” — just like Walt.

Here’s Walt Disney singing with the Sherman Brothers.

The greatest connection between the two, however, was how the nation came together to watch something wholesome that they created, with a sense of unity.

I wonder if Walt has been looking down at Dallas from the Heavens at all this? If so, I’m sure he smiles every time he hears the slogan Get used to different, thinking “Why didn’t I come up with that?”

This Tuesday, April 13, Season Two: Episode 2 will be released. If I had one thing I would change about “The Chosen” it would be that Dallas premiere new episodes and continue bring people together on Sunday nights — just like Walt … and just like Christ intended.
