The Lego Star Wars Easter Story

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.’”

A Long Time Ago On A Sofa Far Far Away…

… well last year…

There was a collection of Easter / Passion stories told on Twitter under the banner of #EasterLive, which the The Church Sofa joined in with… and well… we decided to try and be different. What would happen if the Rebel Alliance, and the Empire decided to put aside their differences for one moment, and put on an Easter play? How would that go?

Well, as a few people have come across The Sofa looking for star wars moments like the above, I’ve posted them on a special Lego Easter page on the youth club ideas section of our website.

If you’re interested in the tweets that went alongside them, then check out the main Easter Live site – they’re very nicely kept hold of them for us!
