remember the cheers theme song...there's a lot of truth to the lyrics here...

Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.

Wouldn't you like to get away?

Sometimes you want to go

Where everybody knows your name,
and they're always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows
Your name.

You wanna go where people know,
people are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows
your name.


Great thoughts! I was invited to a similar situation with work friends tonight. I'll try to keep this in mind.


The bar is one of the best places to minister to and love on people through friendship. Jesus met people where they were at, and your post gets at the crux of why so many of my friends and acquaintences head to the bar after work - they are looking for family, for a way to unwind, for comfort and familiarity.

We in the Body of Christ should be offering this to those who don't know Jesus yet, but too often, we don't have a proper understanding of what that context of "family" should look like. Once we "get" it, following Jesus and being part of the community God has designed and created us for becomes so inviting to others because it speaks to a deep need within each of us for community.

Great post.


We all long to be loved :-)


I think your interaction with Dustin reveals the truth that we were created for relationship. Relationship not only with God but with others around us.
