Free Play 202 | Leveraging Fun, Games and Relationships


About This Episode

Wether you’re crushing your friends in Super Smash Brothers on the Switch, or eradicating flesh eating bacteria in Pandemic, games are fun or at least they are supposed to be. They offer rest from the things of life that weigh us down while allowing us the opportunity to build relationships with the people around us. But is there a way to leverage both the fun and relationship building aspect of gaming within the context of the local church? That’s what we want to talk about this week.
