Naughty naughty

Well, mostly not, but it is hard to get through the day without being a little naughty... Am I right? Last night, after Bible study, I returned home to one of my apartment mates so we could get freaky!

That's right! You heard me! We went at it for two hours! It was loud, it was intense and by the end of it we'd used up all our energy and collapsed in a heap. But it was so satisfying. We unlocked at least four challenge trophies! And now we are awesome at "Cruel Brawl" mode. We reckon Meta Knight is the go. His spin attack from side to side is pretty good. We aren't too bad when it comes to "Home Run Contest" either.

Ah, Super Smash Brothers: Brawl, how you bring people together. It's been fantastic having another person who loves Jesus living in the apartment and he's really been there for me when I've had a tough time of things.

Truly I tell you. Mario Kart Wii and SSBB have really helped bring people closer together. There's nothing like coming home to a voice saying, "Take off your shoes, pull up a controller and we'll de-stress for a while."

Another interesting phenomenon: How a family friendly game can bring about so much bad language. We make up the craziest insults. Usually they consist of a mash of really rude words in no particular order, the likes of which I won't post here. We make up alternate, unkind names for all the characters, just so we can call them by that name when they beat us. It really brings us together.

It was really good to be back at Bible study last night after missing a few weeks. We read Acts 17, which was fantastic. It was great how Paul, even in his distress, managed to find a foothold with which he could bring the good news of Jesus to the Greeks with whom he was talking; how he eloquently spoke in a way that made it familiar, without compromising the truth. In our mission to those around us it's often so hard to start off. But when we look at his time, we really see an environment very similar to our own. We see a place where everyone likes nothing better than to spend "their time doing nothing but talking about and listening to the latest ideas."

It really sounds like a University environment, which is especially relevant for me.

It really is good news, everyone. Have a fantastic week.
