So the Super Bowl is coming up in just a few days and maybe you, like me, will be going to a Super Bowl party. Well, I thought I might share a few tips to help us avoid those awkward moments that could come up during the big event.
Tip #1: If you are going for a high five after a great play, make sure that the other person is also planning on the same maneuver. There is nothing worse than standing up in the midst of a great moment with your hand raised in the “high five” position only to find nothing but air waiting for you up there.
Tip#2: If you have not been paying close attention to the game and all of a sudden you notice a great play, if nobody else is cheering, make sure it is not an instant replay before you cheer wildly.
Tip #3: It is okay to enjoy the commercials at the big game, but talking loudly during the game and telling everyone to be quiet during the commercials is not acceptable. The same holds true for the halftime show.
Tip #4: There are always people at Super Bowl parties who are not as interested in the game as you might be. It is okay to pretend to be listening to them when they talk, but watch out for those awkward moments when you find out that they have been waiting for a response and you have no idea what they were talking about.
Tip #5: Double-dipping is okay, only when it takes place on your own plate.
So I hope those were some good tips that will help us all avoid any awkward moments at the big game. It is never fun to be caught in the midst of an awkward moment. But this Sunday, at The River, we will be catching someone in the midst of a few awkward moments.
In John 5, we find a healing that Jesus does in Jerusalem, but while it is miraculous, it is also a little bit strange. The man who is healed has several awkward moments in this passage that are hard to understand. But these awkward moments also can serve as reminders to us about what to do when God is at work in our lives. Join us at The River this Sunday to find out more.
And, if you are looking for a Super Bowl party to attend, consider joining ours. We will be at the home of one of our River Church families’. Give us a call (952-654-7620) if you want to attend.
