The Complete Lego Star Wars Easter Story

As seems to now be tradition. Heres a repeat of a little something I did a few years ago as part of a wider online project. (And also gave birth to Tales From The ToyShelf). Here is a series of of photos of Lego men telling the Lego Easter Story…  Please feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions about it.

(It also seems to be turning into a tradition that I keep meaning to update this a little)

The Star Wars Lego Easter Story.

“Go to the village ahead of you”

PalmSunday: Mark Chapter 4 - Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King 1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 3 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.’”

8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. 9 Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna![a]” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[b] 10 “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” 11 Jesus entered Jerusalem and went into the temple courts. He looked around at everything, but since it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the Twelve.

Turning The Temple Tables 

 15 On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. 17 And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’[c]? But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’[d]” 18 The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching.

More Ways to Show Love and Acceptance.

So, lets face it. 2016 is an interesting year. With arguably negative political campaigns held on either side of the Atlantic, leading to negativity spilling out of the newspapers and impacting people in a real way. It feels like the world is leaving 2016 in a far more negative place then when it entered it.

I’m not going to write a full discourse looking at why this may be the case, instead I’m going to look at a few ideas of what could be done to improve matters. (There’s no way of phrasing the next sentence without being cheesy) How can we spread more love in 2016?

Read The Gruffalo…

Kids books are awesome, and the world needs more awesome. Try The Gruffalo for a flavour of awesome. Actually try anything from Julia Donaldson.

Volunteer For A Local Charity / Organization.

community-897760_960_720

Because volunteers are awesome, and there’s probably something out there you’d like doing. (I personally know of opportunities to cook, and build lego.*) If nothing else, doing something good might help to improve your CV.

Any other suggestions you’d like to share?

*These are two separate volunteer positions, at different places. There isn’t a magical place where you cook AND play with lego…. I dont think.

 

A Look at a Lego Cathedral.

Do you like Cathedrals? Do you like Lego? If you’re around Exeter in Devon, Exeter Cathedral is hosting a Big LEGO® Build, with the aim of building a huge 3.6m scale-model of Exeter Cathedral out of LEGO bricks.

Sofa went along the other week, and took a couple of photos…

Check out the Exeter Cathedral Website, for further information about the project, and how to volunteer.

See The Tales From The ToyShelf, Facebook and Instagram pages for more Lego photos.
