‘Jedi’ religion most popular alternative faith – Telegraph

So the decline in religion includes the Jedi. I’m not sure if that is “heartening” news or not. It does affirm one of my deeply held convictions: Many people develop their religious views by “osmosis” and movies and television are one of their primary sources.

You may not be an actual Jedi but perhaps you are a functioning Jedi? Things to think about, things to drive you back to reading scripture and finding out Who God says He is rather than letting Steven Spielberg and George Lucas and perhaps Oprah tell you what you believe.

Luke the Gospel in Action – New Sermon Series

A new sermon with admittedly a fairly significant error. For years I have used a liturgical calendar for my worship planning. I did away with it this year. Also most years Advent begins on the last Sunday in November. Coming off of a week of vacation I panicked and thought I’d forgotten Advent – so looks like Advent is 5 Sundays this year or we are practicing the first Sunday of Advent A and B this year. Oh well here is the first sermon of a series in the Book of Luke with some early comments on Advent – just grinning and counting on Grace here.
