For the longest I have had this idea about a round table for young people, where they could express a little bit of their creativity, talk about any topic they’d like to discuss, and come with ideas on how to apply to their daily lives the things they were learning. All that activity would be recorded, and then distributed as a podcast.
Now I have the same idea, but replacing young people with Hispanic dads.
And using the World Cup as the starting point for every discussion.
I think it may work.
There is not way to deny it : Soccer – or futbol – is the most popular sport in the world. And with the World Cup coming up this Summer of 2014, we will have a great opportunity to use it as an instrument of disciple-making, providing a great setting to step out of our own cultures, for God’s glory and the benefit of others.
The more we talked, the more concerned I became.
When are we going to talk about doctrine and theology? That was the question in my mind.
At the moment, cooking hamburgers over a grill, while making small talk, wasn’t looking like the best way to make disciples, at all. But then, I remembered what the end result of our discipleship process is, and things came into focus.
Very interesting interview with the author of Culture Making, Andy Crouch.
“Christians should be out in the midst of the world as both witnesses and salt, not sitting in a fortress surrounded by a moat.”
