Fun in the Word

This year for Lent we gathered the people of the Church together and had an excercide. We tried to come up with some ideas for a Theme for Lent. We had some new Christians in the group and some long-term Christians as well. We played around with a few ideas befroe we settled into Fun.

Now I know what you may be thinking, what does fun have to do with Lent. Well that was my first thought as well. then we started playing around with the idea some more. We decided that The Word of God is what Lent is about and it is possible and should be encouraged to have fun in the Word.

So our theme throughtout the season is Fun in the Word. Of all the adjectives and adverbs and other parts of speech that people use to describe the Word of God, fun seems to be conspicuous inb ints absence. Perhaps, that is exactly what is wrong with us as Christians. We take ourselves too seriously. We look at the World and think that WE must save it and the World is going to pot without us.

We look at the Bible in the same way,
