We bought some good ice cream from Costco, and last night the boys were munching down on it. I decided to take the time to ask Nathan about what kind of ice cream and cake he likes. He was quite talkative. Then Benjamin decided to show us how he likes to eat an ice cream cone.
Yesterday was free cone day at Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. All over the world they gave away a free ice cream cone with absolutely no requirements. Of course we went to the local Ben and Jerry’s to get our cones.
I got to thinking about Ben and Jerry’s, free stuff, and of course, ministry.
It’s amazing how people will line up to get free ice cream. Who wouldn’t want to eat ice cream (besides some super healthy people I know)? I don’t think Ben and Jerry’s made money today, but it wasn’t about that. It was about the community. It was about getting their message out to the public.
There are lots of things in the world that should be free. I’m a big fan of sharing resources in ministry and offering things for free. We even have a site that has free youth ministry resources in Spanish. Ministries ought to share resources to further the Kingdom.
I use lots of different sites to get free resources for youth ministry.
When I tell my students that I want to offer some resources on the website for free, they look at me like I am crazy. But, why not? Free is good. Free resources for ministry have helped me a lot. We can all benefit from each other.
If Ben and Jerry’s can offer free ice cream, why can’t we offer free stuff in the church? I loved free cone day.
