Living Room Redemptive Party

19 November, 2003 7:34 AM

Last night at Living Room we continued our discussion on parties. We decided to have a Living Room Christmas Party.

Our hope is that it will be more than just an end of year breakup but that it will something of a Redemptive Party.

There are three main ways we want to be intentional about this:

1. We will be inviting those on the fringes of our group in an attempt to let our world collide a little. We hope this will help us to get to know one another's friends and allow us to explore more of what it is to do evangelism as a community and not just individuals.

2. There will be a simple reflection/worship experience for party goers to participate in at their convenience during the night. This will probably take the form of a candle lighting ritual (around the theme of the 'light of the world') and perhaps some reflections (both written and artistic) to be posted around the party rooms for party goers to be stimulated as they party.

3. Party goers will be invited to bring a gift for a child. These presents will be donated to a Melbourne organization that works with refugees, the poor and displaced people.

It is unlikely that there will be any formal time where the party will be stopped so that we can do anything planned corporately - rather its hoped that the above elements will enable the night to not only be fun but a meaningful and life giving experience to all concerned.

Interested in your thoughts.



Great idea, the candle idea is easily something that christians and none christians can do and defintley a good thing considering the times we are in
