We Need More Smiting!

I keep meaning to mention SmiteFest, because it's probably the coolest thing an Episcopalian church has done in some time. But then, they are not a very typical church: they are putting on a video game/board game night with free food and drink and no preaching.

Well, technically, there's preaching upstairs, but you'll never hear it down in the Undercroft. Which is what they call the daylight-rambler-type basement. I talked about gamers with the event organizers, and let me assure you that they Get It. They dig on 4th century Christian mystics, love to talk about heresies and history, and are also gaming goobs.

So, if you are in the Seattle area, and are intrigued by the games or the food or just hanging out, details are:

Date: Saturday, December 13, 2008

Time: 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Place: The big space beneath Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Kenmore
6211 NE 182nd Street
Kenmore, WA

Games: Rock Band 2, Guitar Hero, Halo 3, Wii Sports and more

Food: Pizza and soda and things.

Oh, and they have a logo.

I remain an unlikely choice to vouch for this, I realize. But the event is free (donations to Child's Play cheerfully accepted), and knowing quizro, pretty damn entertaining.
