As a missionary we often would talk about how Missionaries were like the Jedi, it was even brought up in a Zone Conference, one of the Assistants said, “President Wilkey is like Yoda, listen to him”. At lunch, everyone talked about how Missionaries are like Jedi. Here are a few ways that Missionaries are like Jedi, if I missed one, add it in the comments, and I’ll update this!
Belief in a higher an overarching power
The Jedi have the force.
Missionaries have the Spirit.
Jedi have a dress code, most of them wear “Jedi robes”.
Missionaries have a dress code and also wear “robes”.
The Jedi receive training at the Jedi Temple.
Missionaries receive training at Mormon Temples.
Jedi when they need insight from the “force” they go meditate in the “meditation room” (in the Jedi Temple).
When Missionaries need insight from the Spirit they Pray, and if they can they go to the Celestial room (in a Mormon Temple).
