The Proms

Now this is a wild idea. Plan a night of nationalistic flash, invite enough people that it takes two separate meetings and charge $10.00 per person. There was Irish dancing, Scottish bag pipes and a massed band, first in formal attire and then in athletic wear. Tell some jokes and let the crowd sing along once in a while. Decorate the house with the Union Jack and pass out a bunch for people to wave indiscriminately. And you thought Waverley Temple was notoriously traditional.

A lot of people were comfortable in the house that day, including us. They seemed like such normal and fun people there. I wouldn't be surprised if some people came back to see how they worship God. They get a high rating for a creative event that drew many different people inside where they found friendly people in the name of Christ. Not bad at all.

Luke 15:24 (NLT)
24 for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.' So the party began.

notoriously traditional...hasn't the proms become a tradition there now? where's the new idea that isn't the same as what happened last year (and 10 years before that)?
