One joke in the Episcopal church is about the passing of the Peace. The priest begins with "The Peace of the Lord be always with you." And the people answer, "And also with you," before turning to the neighbors, shaking hands, and passing the Peace with "Peace be with you."
The joke is that we have a wicked sense of humor. In the Star Wars series, whenever a character says, "May the Force be with you," we Episcopalians have an urge to answer the screen with "And also with you."
So on this day, I send you my Star Wars Blessing. May the Fourth be with you.
And also with you. I just couldn't help myself.
