Few hero narratives (other than Harry Potter!) have been part of the common lexicon in the United States over the past 40 years as much as those in the Bible and those found within the Star Wars movies. Both texts help us ponder our humanity: where we find hope, what corrupts us, what saves us, is there justice, and what we make of redemption. In this season of anticipation (of The Rise of Skywalker on Dec. 20 and of Christmas), come let us reflect as we prepare for the world that is yet to be. Join us Dec 1, 8, and 15 for our The Force Is With Us series.
