Lingering Lamb Update: As my first college semester comes to an end, I feel like it is appropriate for my blog to take its first break. After a long three months of school, I feel the need to spend some quality time with my family (away from the computer). The Lingering Lamb will return on December 22, 2015 (next Tuesday).
As I was painting the new youth room at my church, my fellow painters and I discussed ways to reach out to the community and how to help fulfill the Great Commission. I was immediately reminded of something I’ve been wanting to do for a while: I’ve wanted to host a Video Game Club.
Video games are incredible ice breakers. Honestly, if two people have a common love for video games, then nothing, not even religious or political affiliation, can separate their friendship. I personally believe that evangelizing should be done casually, and without an extremely awkward approach (*cough cough* street evangelizing). Since friendships are easily created through video games, then why not use video games as a means to evangelize?
Come 2016, I will be co-hosting a gaming club that will feature all kinds of gaming systems. We will probably primarily be playing modern consoles (PS4, Wii, etc). But every once in a while, I want the club to feature the Nintendo 64, PlayStation 1, and other classics. I want to include the old consoles to celebrate the old stuff and to give the senior attendees something more familiar. Hehe!
All in all, though, I just want it to be a fun time of fellowship and gaming… and to hopefully meet new people who have as much of a passion for video games as I do.
(I will announce official dates on this blog once the Video Game club is fully organized, so BE READY)
So what do you guys think? Is a video game club a good idea? If so, what would make the club exceptionally fun? More so, how might someone use video games as a means to evangelize or get to know people? You’re feedback is much appreciated.
Again, the Lingering Lamb will take a one week break and return on December 22, 2015. However, although I won’t be posting until the 22nd, I will definitely reply to any comments.
