Dungeons and Dragons and Devotions.

This week’s blog post is inspired by a few things. The first would be my hall – Horton Ground East – with which I am the RA. The second would be Focus Prayer Night – A prayer night inspired by some friends of mine with a purpose of uniting the colleges of Springfield.

Segue.

As the mixed aromas of mozzarella and male saturated my dorm room, I was reminded why Thursday night was one of my favorite nights of the week. While most people don’t look forward to taking time out of their busy schedules to have a late night devotional, it was something that I ended up growing very fond of. With eager expectation I began my devotion.

This devotion was the first one of the semester so I wanted to make it count (I also made it mandatory and didn’t want to waste my hall’s time… though they did get pizza out of it). So I took time to just let them know how thankful I was for having them as a hall. I would say that my hall is a rarity. I’m not saying that other halls aren’t as awesome as mine, but… I just love the dynamic of my hall.

What is so unique about my hall is just how diverse it is. I have people from all walks of life, with different interests and hobbies, all coming together every Thursday to talk about one unifying theme – Christ. Though every day of the week they may have different friend groups, Thursday is that night all of their differences fade away as they talk about God. I have students who write music, play Dungeons and Dragons, enjoy sports, watch situational comedy, and yet despite all of that Christ brings them together.

For the devotion I read from 1Corinthians 12, the passage about the body of Christ. In the passage Paul talks about how all these different parts come together to form one body. It reminded me of my hall – that though they are all so different, they are all (as we are all) united under Christ. I think that is what heaven is going to be like. The Baptists will praise God in the midst of the Pentecostals, and the Methodists, and the Presbyterians. There will be people of every tribe and every tongue.

Despite all our differences, Christ unifies us all.

Take time this week to talk to someone you wouldn’t normally associate with. It might be tough finding a common ground at first, but just remember… you might be spending eternity next to this person worshipping God in heaven. You might as well get acquainted now.
