Though Templeton no longer professes a belief in any organized religion, he admits that he “believes in many things,” and in Wretch Like Me, he shows us how a belief in humor has great healing powers. The title comes from one of Templeton’s favorite gospel songs: “Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.” As a teenager he gains acceptance in his school’s Jesus Club where the group sings Amazing Grace to the tune of such popular songs as House of the Rising Sun and the theme song to the TV show Gilligan’s Island.
Through his sense of humor we watch Templeton grow from a desperate teenager in search of acceptance to someone who realizes that “some things are just between me and God and is nobody else’s business.” This entertaining thought-provoking show will take you on a spiritual journey that will raise you up with laughter.
