My husband and I have 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 that 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 that has questionable ethics.  If you play a game with people who uphold Christ’s standard, you will likely be playing a scenario that has 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 that 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.
