Star Wars
The Force Awakens this Friday, December 18th.  Star Wars will likely dominate many families’ Christmas gatherings.  With this in mind, Andy sought advice from Robert Mrosko, head pastor at Brookfield Lutheran Church, who has been a Star Wars fan since seeing Episode 4 in 1977 when he was six years old.

Pastor Rob shares why he thinks the Star Wars franchise has been so popular before sharing ways that the series connects with Biblical themes that Christians can use in conversations to share the Gospel.

Pastor Rob also addresses two approaches Christians often times take when approaching secular films like Star Wars: approaching it just as entertainment with no discernment or avoiding it all together due to certain elements that oppose Scriptural truths.

Andy also asks if the Star Wars series has a Christ-like figure and who the hero actually is since it appears that the Dark Side has a popularity in toy and clothing marketing and products.

Finally, Pastor Rob gives some pastoral advice for Christians to consider when entering into this new trilogy.
