The goal of these activities in my mind were very specific as opposed to other game-nights with an orientation towards outreach. In a distinct manner, this special time was geared for our church members to get a little bit closer to one another through some cordial physical contact and team strategy. You see, the tendency of the true church today is to emphasize the law above the spirit of worship. In our culture, people have forgotten what it is to be citizens of a KING, and thus the need for the church to set the Law on a high pedestal and keep people from veering in independence from it. But this stifles our spirit of worship and affection for one another. These games forced a certain closeness in order to develop some needful feelings for one another through joint participation. Jesus said "...this is how people will know that you are my disciples...that you have love for one another..." and that certainly included a deep compassion (feelings).
