First, I have to thank my gurl Tara Stone, President of God Out of The Box, LLC, for such an enjoyable evening. You go gurl! You are fantastic! You are amazing! Well done! Keep up the great work! You're number one! Great job! Keep rising to the top!
Tonight I had the opportunity to participate in something profoundly innovative, a gospel game night! That's right, i'm talking childhood favorites like, Checkers, Connect Four, MONOPOLY! Then even more positively competitive games like, Spades, Dominoes and Uno! All in a very elegant, candlelit atmosphere with DJ Reese on the ones-and-two rotating a selection of God's favorites gospel songs like; Erica Campbell's "I Love God" to Marvin Sapp's "Never Would Have Made It"
At Stella's Cafe, in Uptown, We were laughing, slapping High-Fives, sharing stories, and sharing a delicious meal together. A group of peculiar people from very diverse backgrounds enjoying each others company doing something that connects us all. You would say it was a little taste of Heaven.
A commonly shared experience was that we had participated in a game night, most likely it was not the kind that played Gospel Music in the background. Finding that out about ourselves made us laugh, look at the other person with a little more empathy and a great sense of not feeling alone about doing something so courageous for God. It was a familiar space but with a twist.
The God Out the Box, Gospel Game Night is THE beginning to something really amazing. We had a young married couple hold down the Spades table twice in a row! We had a Monopolist making side deals before the roll of the dice. Oh let me not forget about the ongoing game of Jenga played by any person that walks around the room. The game finally dropped by Tara as she daringly tried to remove the next block.
We really had a great time! And there's more so make sure you connect with Tara Stone on Face Book, LinkedIn and Instagram exciting things are still happening in 2017! www.facebook.com/tara.stone.3154
