Kenny and Mike discuss Elvis and spot faith elements and concepts reflected in the Baz Luhrmann biopic staring Ausin Butler as Elivs Presley and Tom Hanks as Col. Tom Parker.

Faith Spotted: 

The presentation and nature of temptation. Tom Parker as the serpent temptor knowing and preying on the vulnerabilities, fear, grief, and guilt) of Elvis and his parents.

The guilt and fear of losing his twin brother was a life long gravitational force that impacted the rest of the Presley members lives.

The importance of moving through mourning and grief, through spiritual disciplines and faith which opens one to experience the peace of God that passes our understanding as well as loss.  Philippians 4:7

Live one's life and calling rather than the life and expectations of others.

Do not be conformed to the ways, methods, and values of this world but transformed and a transforming force by the renewing of one's mind so that one may discern the desires and presence of God.   Romans 12:

The calling of Christ to love and serve others, looking for their best interests rather than selfishly enabling and exploiting another for one's own benefit.
