Need a break? Laugh your way through the next 2 minutes and 12 seconds. .
One of the major themes highlighted during the Orange Conference last week was the importance and essence of FUN in our church ministry environment - ALL ministries - from the nursery to the big room. Fun over time breeds connection. It allows for strangers to drop down the walls enough for others to peek into their lives. FUN normalizes and stabilizes strange, new environments. And it connects us to one of the visible fruits of the an active and engaged Holy Spirit in our life: Joy.
Perhaps most important, FUN draws all of us us into the wonder and imagination of God. Look for a post in the next couple of weeks on the theology of FUN!
