Bring colorful balloons for everyone at your next event. After opening with prayer and a devotion, have everyone blow up their balloon—after they have held it for a moment have them hold on to the end while at the same time, letting the air out.
Now have everyone look at their deflated balloon. What has happened? Just as their balloon and yours have a new shape since it has been expanded by blowing it up and releasing the air inside, so our purpose in our gatherings should be stretched in new ways, to think beyond what we knew when we came and to look ahead for new ideas! This can happen when we gather together for Bible Study, fellowship, prayer and service!
