The Star Wars Lego Easter Story

A Long Time Ago On A Sofa Far Far Away…

… well a couple of years ago…

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, and ask: 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? We tried to find out by using a collection of Star Wars Lego related photos.

Well, as Easter is coming up, it felt like a good time to repeat the collection of Lego photos telling the Easter story.. Please feel free to drop us an email if you have any questions about it:

“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.’”

What We Can Learn From Star Wars

What Lessons can the church learn from Star Wars?It’s a saga that has carried on through the ages.

Watching it is like a torch that gets passed from generation to generation.

I am obviously referring to the legend that is Star Wars*. To celebrate watching this fine masterpiece just the other night here are 10 lessons we can take from Star Wars:

  1. Ignore small people at your peril.
  2. Yes old people can be wise… and useful in a fight.
  3. There are alternatives to fighting.
  4. “I’ve got a very bad feeling about this”
  5. “Whose more foolish? The fool? Or the fool that follows it?”
  6. Women in leadership can get you out of trouble…
  7. Sometimes you have to stop fighting, in order to win.
  8. Computers don’t always get it right…
  9. Feeling under pressure? Close your eyes.
  10. Does that dude seem uninterested in you? Keep interested in him. He might come back.

*In this case we are talking about Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope.

Any more out there?
