We had a pretty decent turnout for “Screen on the Green” and the movie was hilarious. Have you ever seen “The Little Giants”? I never had, but I laughed straight through this cute children’s football movie…
I laughed until the next night when I went with my mentor, Bonnie, to see her daughter cheer for the the Ben Lippen vs. Hammond JV football game. It was there that I saw a little boy get tackled and his arm bone popped through his skin! On that note, I informed Joel that our little boys would never play football. To that he replied, “Just think about the little giants! You can’t rob your children.”
One funny moment that happened at “Screen on the Green” was when Joel pulled his truck up behind the fraternity house to load sound equipment and about 10 girls piled in because they thought he was a pledge coming to pick them up for a concert that night! It was the funniest thing. All of our leaders were standing about 100-yards away watching the whole thing happen in slow motion. The look on Joel’s face as he tried to explain that he was not escorting anyone to see “Afro Man” was humorous to say the least.
A huge praise from the event was that 2 Kappa Kappa Gamma’s said they wanted to meet with a leader to talk about starting a relationship with Christ! This was awesome for our students to see! Even though it was not a purposefully spiritual outreach, people saw a difference in our students and desired to know more!
The weather is getting chili and I nearly froze my toes off during Screen on the Green. Therefore, I have been inspired to host a “TGIFall Party” for our community group potluck! I am thinking warm, cozy soups, hearty breads and dips…something applely-sweet to top it off.
Now I need recipes! Any suggestions?? Please comment and tell me your fave fall recipes!
