How about this for "Church" Growth?

Okay, so if you look here you can find info on Jediism, a new "religion" based off of the Star Wars movies. Over 500,000 have claimed to belong to this religion; it has temples and the like.

500,000? That's a goodly bit. . . and it has to have been growing as it wasn't around 10 years ago. Now, granted, I think a lot of it is due to the fact that there is an awesome movie tie-in.

And this got me to thinking - our pastors are basically professional writers. We write sermons, we know dialog -- alright, let's have a Synodical committee get on the ball and get a group to write an exciting Sci-Fi or Fantasy series where the hero is Lutheran - and maybe we can get some tie-ins to this. We could throw in some subtle digs. . . have the cowardly supervisor be Methodist or something.

You know, we could deflect some Ablaze! funds to this - because it could grow greatly. If you have a plot line, feel free to share them here!
