Super Bowl Party
The Super Bowl is such a unique event in US culture. People who ignore football most of the year will sit and watch this event. My wife, for instance, watched the whole game! I asked her what the score was at half time and she actually knew the answer!
We have always enjoyed hosting or attending a neighborhood Super Bowl Party. Last year, we had just moved into the neighborhood and invited some of our neighbors to come. Nobody showed up. I was a little depressed. But I said to Deb, "Next year will be different".
This year, I was wishing we had a bigger house and a bigger TV. In addition to family and church friends, we had two of our neighbors join us. I had such a great time, and not just because the Broncos won. I really feel God's greatest call on our lives is to love our neighbors. We can't really love them if we don't know them and we took on step closer to that cheering for the Broncos!
