Some movies strongly appeal to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, despite their lack of real connection to the Church and its members. These films teach timeless lessons, tout quotable lines, feature moral characters and sometimes include a musical number or two.
“Newsies” is one of those films that has enjoyed wild popularity among Mormons for years. Maybe it’s because of these seven gospel truths we learn from Jack Kelly, David Jacobs and Spot Conlon.
1. People can put aside their differences.
We’re stronger when we stand together, even with people we don’t always agree with.
2. Perspective is everything.
For better or worse, your outlook changes things.
