My mate Simeon flicked me this article this afternoon: Struggling in life? Get guidance from Albus Dumbledore. Yes, that’s right, once again we find fiction is inspiring a new faith, only this time the emerging canon is the Harry Potter series.
The above article introduces us to Slack, a self declared Harry Potter rabbi. According to Deborah Netburn, “Slack is working on his own book and inviting Potter fans to assist in its writing. It is called What Would Dumbledore Do? and he envisions it as a self-help guide to living in the world according to the tenets of Albus Dumbledore. He has asked fans to share what they’ve learnt from Dumbledore on an open blog at WhatWouldDumbledoreDo.org.”
Makes me wonder what other fictional works have religious potential.
