Sunday is for Star Wars

The new Star Trek movie was good (went to see it with Blake Huggins), but the sight of young Kirk on the plains of Iowa (which apparently in the future isn't destroyed by marriage equality) reminded me whistfully of Luke Skywalker on Tatooine, though with less whining about cleaning droids.

And it looks like I wasn't the only one who thought so: check out this video.

I like what Mark Batterson wrote a while back about "genesis stories" about stories that speak to longtime members of the congregation on a deep level that the newcomers can feel the echoes of. 

Perhaps in every one of us is a farm child wanting to go to space.

Wow.  Deep.

Well, it's a hero's journey, right? (Yes, I'm old enough to have loved Star Trek first...)
