How Not to Join the Walking Dead
by Reverend Kathleen Rolenz and

March 17, 2013

Science fiction monsters continue to be very big in the popular media - in television shows, movies and video games. The presentation of the characters in these shows is much more sophisticated than ever before. The vampires, zombies, and ghosts in these presentations are all examples of "walking dead," (i.e. entities who continue to have a life after they have died), and many of them want to return to their human existence! This multigenerational service will explore the theology and symbolism of the walking dead in a way that all ages can appreciate.
