    The Bible doesn’t use the word entertainment, except maybe once: “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” (Heb. 13:2), but the context is about hospitality, not “having fun”. It doesn't use recreation or amusement, either.  It doesn’t seem to speak specifically on these topics. But it has a lot of very big things to say about rest.

    Imagine you are sitting in a restaurant and overhear a conversation between two 30-something men in the booth behind you. You hear one man say, “I don’t do anything unless my dad tells me.” What would you think? Words like “needy,” “codependent,” and “immature” come quickly to mind. Talk about “failure to launch”—this guy needs to grow up! And yet that is exactly what Jesus said

    I can guess what I would have said if I were Peter, James, or John. It would have been a whisper, cupping one of the others’ ears, slightly leaning in. Though soft, it would have been emphatic. Though muted, it would have been with alarm. “I can’t believe Jesus just said that! Is that even allowed?!”

    If you’re a Kossuth old-timer, you may have noticed a typo in your bulletin this past week. By now, you’re used to our October tradition of Missions Emphasis, when we devote two consecutive weeks to exploring our global responsibility as a local church. But last week’s bulletin contained an apparently erroneous announcement about an upcoming Mission Emphasis—without the “s.” What’s the deal with that? Did our proofreading department take the week off or something?
