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 create an updated version)
The Star Wars Lego Easter Story.
“Go to the village ahead of you”
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.’”
Mark Chapter 11
After failing in their search for a lego donkey… the disciples decided at least something with horsepower would do…
#EasterLIVE Mark11 Palm Sunday
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,
“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.
Mark Chapter 11
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.
Although I’ve not been there for a while. (Having a kid does things to your wallet).
I love Manchester. To say it holds a special place in my heart is under playing it a fair bit. I spent four years at Manchester Met University, and during that time I fell in love with not just the city and its people, but the music that seemed to be played around that area.
In fact just the other day, I was listening to a 90s music playlist on Amazon, and on came Oasis. In a moment, I pictured myself on the streets of Manchester, worried about programming, and never thinking about Facebook.
Soon after I left Manchester (*typical*), this rather odd sounding event was hosted in Manchester City Centre called, “The Manchester Passion”.
The Manchester Passion was simply described as an Easter Passion play set against the back drop of Manchester, with a Manchester sound.
Personally I wonder if its something more than that.
Anyway. Some lovely person has put the Manchester Passion on Youtube.
The day it comes down, my Easter soundtrack will be changed forever.
