You know a great opportunity for churches? They should stay open after Mass/Service on Sundays and open their parish halls up to the public to watch the Sunday football games. It would be a great opportunity to promote people getting together and build lasting relationships. They could even add an ecumenical element, and add screens at the non-football end that had cameras & screens connected with other parish halls via the web so that folks at one location could talk with folks at other locations. Many church parish halls also have attached kitchens. You could have some folks make snacks & meals that could be served during the event. People from all over town could come together to watch sports, eat food & talk.
This would work at local grammar school gyms as well as church parish halls. In the gym setting, instead of making food in the attached kitchens, you might set up a town restaurant delivery system. So that local restaurants could cater the locations.
A friend of mine, who I told about this idea called it “church as man-cave”. I then had to tell him that there is an alternate Christian tradition, that Jesus was born, not in a manger, but a cave. And if you combine that with some thinking that Jesus was the “Son of Man” (from the book of Daniel), it made me wonder if a church named “The Son of Man-Cave”, would be a winner.
