When I was a Children’s minister, seeing all the different kinds of worship services, it made me to joke about having a “Star Wars” church service complete with cosplay and everything for the kids. And then I read this quote by fellow Nicene Creed geek Father Dwight Longnecker:
“Disenchanted clergymen looking for a new idea might install wide screens in their churches and beckon more of the Star Wars faithful to participate in the clash between good versus evil each Sunday morning. With a bit of musical ingenuity, the Star Wars theme music could be developed into a very stirring processional hymn. Acolytes could be dressed in Obi Wan Kenobi monastic robes and carry light sabers instead of candles. The liturgy could begin with “May the Force be with you.” To which all reply, “And with your spirit.” For the communion hymn, each Han could sing a solo.”
Sounds like a plan to me! What do you think?

I own the two seasons of Chappelle’s Show, and they never cease to make me laugh. Dave’s genius has gone under appreciated, and in a way, many of his skits were prophetic. One case in point is his really really brief skit on the Gay KKK Klansman .
Chappelle’s skit was the first thing that came to mind when I read an interview shared original on a Facebook page, with a Russian Gay Aryan Skin Head (an organization that’s in its 20th year).
“We fight for everyone, not just for ourselves. We’re trying to clear this world of unnecessary people who aren’t worthy of this earth.”
Oh how lovely.
