Force and Faith: Luke Returns Home as a Man and a Jedi

Force and Faith Sabers SquareIn my first regular post, let’s just get this out there.  My favorite character is Luke.  In an age where many are rooting for the underdog and cheering for the peripheral characters, I am a fan of the New Hope to the bitter end.  There is just something about his life, his journey and his lineage that calls to me.  And there is something that calls me out of myself – out of my comfortable world to something greater.

This calling is innate in all of us.  It calls us from our childish states to a greater maturity.  Luke heard this call and left his home in order to fulfill his greater purpose as the emerging heir to the Jedi. Continue reading

Yet she remained poised and resilient (at first), regardless of Obi-Wan’s serious accusations against the father of her unborn children. Really, what choice did she have? After all, he’s her husband and as one of the oldest covenants of marriage, most absolute vows state … So that they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God (in this case, the Force) hath joined together, Let No Man Put Asunder.

Obi-wan and Padme no he couldn't
