Can One Be A Christian And Still Have Fun?

Titus 2 students and I attended the Amy Grant concert at the Panama City Marina Civic Center last evening thanks to the generosity of donors who provided free tickets.

The concert was a delightful evening for Titus 2. There were moments when each of us was singing along with songs we’ve known for years. Amy Grant has been performing for 4 decades! Afterward we stopped to get a frozen lemonade and food. One young lady shared that she had never attended a concert before.

It is interesting to see women in recovery discover that there is joy in a wholesome evening of entertainment shared with friends. Several have shared with me that they didn’t realize Christians had fun. How is it that we Christians have gotten a reputation as such dour, un-fun people? Is it that we ourselves have not realized what Christ’s definition of “abundant life” means?
