Kilts and Klingons

Specialty groups. They are every where in society. Last week I went to two different events for people who specific events...a Scottish festival and a star trek concert. For each group there is a lingo, appropriate dress, legends, heros and other cultural artifacts.

I have been thinking about how no one is reaching out to these people. We have ministries to Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Atheists, businessmen, athletes, punks, skaters...etc. What about the Trekkies? What about missionaries to the scifi fans or manga fans? What about history buffs. Paul said that he had become all things to all people.

When we become missionaries, we learn a culture and try to intersect Christ with those people. We do that with Muslims, why not Trekkies. I don't know what a trekkie church would look like. I don't know what a manga church would look like. I do know that Jesus would be glorified if it happened.

I would like to disc golf ministry. Just go to the courses, get to know people and share Jesus. That would be my sub group. Anyone wanna join? Anyone wanna start their own. What would it be like?

I think I'm going to join the mafia and witness to them. Either that or become a Christian Chippendale dancer. What do you think?

Butt seriously, its a good idea, nobody is really looking out for fringe groups like those. At least now we have the porn niche covered with xxxchurch
