"May the Fourth be with you". Indeed.
Not just because of the date but perhaps because the phrase that makes this day particularly special is more than just a date but speaks into a pseudo-belief system.
Whether any of us declared ourselves a Jedi in the census form a decade or so ago when it asked for our religion there is something in all of this that suggests the longing or interest in the belief in greater powers, or a different way of seeing the world, or a deeper way of engaging with the forces of the universe.
It's not exactly a religion even though it has it's own special day, but it is interesting that there is something still attractive in recognising this isn't all there is in this world or all there is to life. We may not put it specifically in those terms, and we may only be having some fun with the 'May the Fourth' stuff but perhaps deep down, it is evidence that we do long for a more just force in the universe that balances out what is unjust and untrue, and, most especially, it isn't beyond us to connect with it.
So indeed, my Jedi knights, May the Fourth be with you.
