More Star Wars Icons

Via Mike Bird, I became aware of Alex Ramos’ Star Wars icons. Click through to see more of them. [Read more...]

Ewoks Share Their Faith

Based on Return of the Jedi, shouldn’t they be asking, “do you have time to become part of a feast in honor of our lord and savior C-3P0?”   [Read more...]

It’s the Jedi Way

It is well known that Alec Guinness did not think at all highly about Star Wars. But he had been hired to play a role, and he did so, and did it well. And so I am surprised that, to my knowledge, no one had added him to the ever-growing collection of “still did their [Read More...]


Butler University’s IT department has created a Wiki to use in training new people, and so they’ve called it a contraction of Wiki IT: Wikit. The obvious Star Wars reference was not lost of them, and so someone made this: [Read more...]

Jason and the Jedi

Some have tried to separate the serious from the frivolous on their blogs, but I have always sought to keep the two together here. I am happy when I see that others do likewise. I was revisiting the history of the very early blogging about the Gospel of Jesus’ Wife, in preparing a conference paper on the [Read More...]

#GenCon 2015 Costumes

  Since Saturday is the day of the costume parade and contest, I decided to dress as the Fourth Doctor and show off the scarf my wife made. Here are some photos from the day:   [Read more...]

The Fastest and Strongest of Sci-Fi Ships

Gizmodo shared this infographic of the fastest ships in reality, NASA planning, and science fiction. You can probably guess which is the fastest, but if not scroll down to see.   There was also a discussion at Comic Con this year about which would win in a fight: the Millennium Falcon or the U.S.S. Enterprise.   [Read more...]

Keep Calm, Obi-Wan Kenobi Loves You

This was drawn to my attention by a blog commenter, reaching them via another site which got it from Reddit. Star Wars and Christianity (and religion more generally) can intersect in all kinds of interesting ways. But I think this is the first time I have seen a photo of someone from Star Wars simply used [Read More...]

Star Wars Jesus Dress Up

A friend of mine spotted this in a bookstore in Perth, Australia, and shared a photo. So it is a real thing. But why is it a thing? Is this designed for people who will buy it simply because it is so bizarre – or because they, like me, are very interested in both Jesus and [Read More...]

Recognizing Evil

This meme came to my attention on Facebook, and of course I had to share it, since it explores the intersection of Star Wars and Christianity. In Star Wars, the original plan was for lightsabers to all be the same color, but this was changed to make things more interesting. But the notion that someone’s stance [Read More...]

Wish I Had Said That

Another great cartoon from Spike Davis. I wonder how many more things that Jesus never said, but some people think he did, you can list. And I wonder whether imagining Jesus saying he wished he’d come up with a particular phrase is a helpful reminder that he was a human being – a gifted teller of [Read More...]
