May the 4th be with you! A throw-back to Star Wars. And a “joke” because especially us Lutherans automatically reply "and also with you” because we are accustomed to hearing the greeting "May the Lord be with you" or "May the peace of Christ be with you always" during worship.
Yet, these are so much more than just simple greetings we do in worship. Being assured of Christ’s peace can make a significant difference in our lives. And sharing that peace with others is both a joy and a responsibility. In other words, it’s big stuff. Just as having the assurance the Lord is with us is big stuff. Life changing!
So on May the 4th, and every other day, the peace of the Lord be with you!!
