Walt Disney Loved To Tell The Story

By Mike Ellis.

In Church this morning we sang a wonderful hymn.  Many of you know it, I’m sure, it’s called “I Love to Tell the Story”, and it goes like this:

I love to tell the story
of unseen things above,
of Jesus and His Glory,
of Jesus and His Love.
I love to tell the story,
because I know ’tis true;
it satisfies my longings
as nothing else can do.
I love to tell the story,
’twill be my theme in glory,
to tell the old, old story
of Jesus and His Love.
I love to tell the story;
more wonderful it seems
than all the golden fancies
of all our golden dreams.
I love to tell the story,
it did so much for me;
and that is just the reason
I tell it now to thee.
I love to tell the story,
’twill be my theme in glory,
to tell the old, old story
of Jesus and His Love.
I love to tell the story;
’tis pleasant to repeat
what seems, each time I tell it,
more wonderfully sweet.
I love to tell the story,
for some have never heard
the message of salvation
from God’s own Holy Word.
I love to tell the story,
’twill be my theme in glory,
to tell the old, old story
of Jesus and His Love.
I love to tell the story,
for those who know it best
seem hungering and thirsting
to hear it like the rest.
And when, in scenes of glory,
I sing the new, new song,
’twill be the old, old story
that I have loved so long.
I love to tell the story,
’twill be my theme in glory,
to tell the old, old story
of Jesus and His Love.
After Church was over, as I was looking through our bulletin again, it struck me that Walt Disney loved to tell the story, and it was that love of the story that led to so many incredibly wonderful movies.  Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, and so many other incredible movies, they were created by Walt and his team because they loved to tell the story.
As those stories were told, time and time again, that led to the Dream that became known as Disneyland, and then, later, Walt Disney World.  All of us that write about Walt Disney, whether it be about the man, the parks, the movies, or whatever, we are all continuing that tradition that Walt Disney started way back when.  We love to tell the story.
Certainly Walt Disney can not be compared to Jesus.  There is no one that compares to my Lord and Savior.  However, I have no doubt at all that Walt Disney walks in Heaven with Jesus.  I never met the man, only know of him through what is found in the media and at the parks, but despite that, I believe that this is the case.  Call it Faith, if you want to.  I also have no doubt that my friend Ken is also up there, and is looking down at those of us left behind and smiling.
What is the point of all of this, you may ask?  I’m not certain that I have the answer to that question; I guess you could say that I was just led to write about it, to share with all of you the things that I had on my mind this day.  I hope you have enjoyed it.
