1 John 1:7
"...but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin."

My husband and I recently started attending regular D&D sessions with a group of our friends. If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s a game in which you have one person making up the story (scenario, really), and a number of “party members” (aka your friends) who role play different characters through an adventure. It’s great fun, and an excuse to spend some time with your friends.

I know some have questioned the ethicality of the game, but a game is what you make of it. If you play with people who have questionable ethics, you will likely be playing a scenario with questionable ethics. If you play with people who uphold Christ’s standard, you will likely be playing a scenario with the same. We play with our Christian friends.

I love books, and D&D is a bit like being able to take part in a book along with your friends. You and your friends can affect the outcome - and even create a bit of the story yourselves. It has been a wonderful opportunity to share something we enjoy with our friends, and they with us. A session often lasts about five hours, and that time is spent laughing and observing one another’s thought patterns.

I am thankful for D&D, that God has used it in our lives to give us a regular source of connection with friends, and a bit of fun time to mentally enter a different world for awhile. What neutral tool are you thankful to be able to use for "good"?
