Church to hold Lord of the Rings mass

Ananova, UK
Nov. 14, 2003 • Friday November 14, 2003

A Dutch church that held a Harry Potter mass last year is now planning to celebrate a Lord of the Rings mass.

The Rev Jaap Ridderbos says the mass at the Gorechtchurch, in Haren, is meant to appeal to young people.

Rev Ridderbos says he has spent more than a year trying to find Christian explanations for what happened in the Tolkien books.

“Did you know Tolkien was a good Christian all his life?” he asked Groninger internet courant.

He plans to show scenes from the film in church and point out comparisons between Tolkien’s books and the Bible.
