4 on a couch...

It's been crazy weather here today. Lots of wind and rain. Ok, so the rain isn't that unusual, but the wind has been sending tress crashing to the ground and blowing small animals into the ocean.

I kind of wondered if any high schoolers would show up. Well, they did. But the mood was a little...umm...I'm not even sure how to describe it. So, instead of our usual routine we opted for playing four on the couch. What is it about this game? This seems to be the one game that every single student will willingly participate in. Go figure...it's the simple things about youth ministry that make this the greatest job on earth!

We also had the power go out with 15 minutes left in the evening, so instead of a mini-lesson we went for a group prayer time. All in all, it's great to have a night like this every once in a while where you can change things up at the last minute and just go with the flow.

Forget just Youth Ministry...there are a few Sunday Mornings in church where four on the couch might be good medicine. That would make for an interesting service.

4 On A Couch is one of our all-time favorite games at my youth group. We play it for hours!

A favourite game of mine since I was in Jr.High! Unfortunately, I'm usually the most unreliable player. You know...the one whom everyone groans at when it's my turn to say a name...I just don't have the attention span to keep it all straight!

I'm horrible at it too. I always get confused and call the wrong names.

And what a sweet isea. Sunday morning "Four on a Pew"!
