AFTER SOME thoughts on the vote by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America to allow openly gay non-celibate pastors, we spent most of the hour exploring the spiritual symbolism in the ABC series Lost.
The show is far more than just a well-crafted dramatic series with strong sci fi/supernatural overtones, it’s rich with symbolism that relates to the spiritual war between good and evil. While we do not ascribe any Christian theology to the show, the themes mined by the writers run deeper than one finds in most television programming.
We recommend ABC’s official Lost website and the unofficial Lostpedia Wiki as places to start. If you have a fast Internet connection, you can watch all 99 of the episodes that have aired to date at the ABC site.
