Easter is upon us and this year, it’s on the same weekend as Tomb Sweeping Day in Asia. I always find it moving when I see other people pray.

The Deeper Meaning of Star Wars

Ethan Gilsdorf examines our faith in the Force.

I spent quite a bit of my youth watching Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi monthly with my little sister. I still know most of the dialogue by heart. George Lucas spoiled part of this sense of wonder by trying to change the original movies in their numerous re-editions. I only like the original versions, none of that CGI bull crap for me.

Still, I have to say that I watch Revenge of the Sith almost once every four to six months. It is undoubtedly the best of the new trilogy. I have trouble comparing it to the older trilogy. As with the original one, there is some shoddy acting, especially by Hayden Christensen. He delivers some of his lines with no emotion, and that’s really annoying at times.

When I watch Attack of the Clones, I have to fast forward those annoying bits where Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen fall in love and all of that BS. Let’s not even talk about Jar-Jar.

Christians on the Storytree

Jesus Christ, The Rose of Sharon, VerseVisions by Mark Lawrence

I was walking with S, Dr. G, and the wife towards a restaurant in the Shida ghetto. We came across two strange ladies who were chanting They were seated close to each other and kept repeating the same thing over and over again. I didn’t see any Buddhist prayer beads or tokens of faith, nevertheless, my mind initially thought that they were Buddhists.

I looked over at S, my eyes full of questions. Christians, she said. Christians? Yes, Christians, she said once again. They are saying the name of the saviour over and over again. Jesus? Yes, Jesus, she said. I said that I thought they were Buddhists. No, they are Christians she said and we continued our walk.

Naturally, I thought of angels and halos when I saw this photo. It’s a really nice one. I like how blurry it is.
