I have an idea that I would like suggest to the church leaders in the Bismarck-Mandan area that I believe would be a blessing to the community.
Let me share my experience when I lived in Indianapolis. Every Friday and or Saturday night Christians were able to get together with others at different church buildings where those leaders sponsored open-mic night. They allowed men and women to bring in and set up their musical instruments to play and sing gospel music for several hours. There was no door fee collected from musicians or from the people who came just to listen and have a time of fellowship and meet new friends.
Some places offered coffee and a snack for a small charge. It sure would be great if some of you reading this would give nonsmokers, nondrinkers something joyful to do on the weekends. What say? Are any of you up to giving our community a spiritual lift?
