If you like #TheMandalorian and what @dave_filoni and @Jon_Favreau did... check out the #CloneWars animated series. The whole series is good, but the FINAL season is 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥😭😭😭😭😭😭
My favorite part of the series was the Anakin development. The animated series shows why everyone revered him but slowly amplified his dark side tendencies.
Animated Anakin is swaggering and charismatic but still temperamental and frustrating.

You feel why he’s The Chosen One and why the Jedi are hesitant to fully believe.
And #Ahsoka is so critical. First as the vessel to show Anakin’s leadership and care. Then she became a multi-faceted, complex character in her own right. And perhaps my favorite Jedi.
It occurred to me yesterday that #AhsokaTano is the only female Jedi we ever spend any significant time with until Rey. There are a few subplots in #CloneWars that feature other female Jedi/Sith (Asaaj Ventress is great), but Ahsoka is one of the main characters.
The excellent @binge_mode brought this up,#Ahsoka is @dave_filoni’s character. And in many ways, she’s the bridge between the Skywalker saga and the larger Star Wars universe. She’s essential to expanding everything.

The magnitude of suffering MANY MANY families are experiencing right now is just overwhelming.
Buffering = when videos pause because they haven’t fully loaded yet. My grief is buffering right now.

The burden of pain, for myself, for my people and for everyone really, is so substantial that it’s stuck. It can’t process.
And I feel a creeping dread. Because I know the video has to keep playing sometime. And I don’t want to experience a lot of what is next. Heavy.

Idolatry isn’t just about what you love, it’s about what you hate. When you organize your life around something you despise, you elevate that idol to a level of counter-worship. Instead of trying to please the idol, you make offerings to harm it.
In a Christian context, idolatry is about elevating anything or anyone beyond their actual value. When you care too much, give too much, obsess too much or fear too much, that’s an object of worship. Or in this case, counter-worship.
You don’t have to consider it at the same level as God for something to be an idol. It just has to take an outsized portion of your resources: time, energy, money, focus, creativity...

Oppression ALWAYS has a beneficiary.
There is no such thing as accidental oppression. It doesn’t just materialize out of thin air. Oppression is zero-sum. Some are made to lose so others are able to gain.
This is part of why oppression is so offensive to God. God is infinite and so is His justice. Justice is not zero sum. There is enough for all.

PSA: You can love Jesus, be an incredibly devoted follower and see a counselor or therapist (in fact, you should).

You can bear the fruit of the Spirit in your life and take meds for mental health issues like anxiety and depression. #MentalHealthMatters
One of the most damaging lies perpetuated by the Church is that mental health issues, diagnosed or undiagnosed, come from a lack of faith.
Here’s the thing: prayer and other spiritual disciplines are critical to mental and emotional and spiritual health. But they aren’t the only tools.

I call this “The Explosive Expert Principle”.

And I’ve seen this principle play out over and over and over again among followers of Jesus.
The name comes from a war story my Dad told me. He was drafted into the Army and served in Vietnam as an Explosives Expert. He has some absolutely horrifying stories, but this one is actually a great illustration.
One day I asked him how he became an explosives expert. As a kid, that seemed like a really cool job. He didn’t explain the process, just told the story.
