There. If you can see the picture above, you’ve got the secret to making every college ministry party a World’s Best Kool-aid Party.
World’s Best Kool-aid was one of the inside jokes we had in my last college ministry. Mafia card games were, too. And I always try to build group camaraderie by getting students laughing at me. I’m pretty naturally ridiculous, and I mean “ridiculous” like “prime for ridicule.” It works, though.
The presence or absence of inside jokes and similar traditions says something about a college ministry.
Second, while we may fall on our face trying to create them, cultivating them will pay off.
