Nostalgia. What does it really mean? Why is it important? Why does it hold so much power over us?
There is no doubt that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the most anticipated movie of the year for die hard and casual fans alike. Since the acquisition of the Star Wars brand and everything associated with it, Star Wars was in a way brought back to life with Disney making promises of creating a Star Wars film every year in the indefinite future.
I sit on a dark orange pew awaiting the sound of music to begin. It is a time of joy, excitement, and sheer wonderment or so I am told. I wait for the "honor" and "privilege" of hearing words of wisdom from a man who has long been identified as an "Apostle of God." He was revered and, in many ways, praised as if he were the second coming of Christ himself. He is not to be challenged nor is he to be disrespected. He will have your abiding attention and his words are to be taken as if gold were being given to those who desired it the most. Because you were much richer for it. Your life was much better off now. But most importantly you are on the right path. The only path to knowing God.
