Our 12th installment of Family Night was on Thursday, September 22, 2011 and we sure had a night of musical fun!! Convergence has been partnering with the City of Oakland Parks and Recs to create these once a month gatherings for our Oakland families for a year to date. We’re continually reminded that togetherness, unity, and family is forged out of our individual willingness to embrace those around us to form genuine community. Family Fun Nights have been a picture of what it means to “love your neighbor as yourself” and many of us have been blessed through serving and loving on our Oakland neighbors.

Family Fun Night Update from Jenn Wu:
Hey Convergence!!
Lately I’ve been reflecting on the direction of Family Fun Nights and what we’ve experienced collectively and individually from doing this ministry for the past 10 months. At the July Family Fun Night, it struck me how awesome it was to sit down at the dinner table and share conversation and food with multi-generational and ethnically diverse families from the West Oakland community. I sat at a table with two grandmothers and their grandchildren, one grandma of Muslim faith, the other a Jehovah’s Witness, and me, talking about who/what Convergence is and our heart for Oakland and families. There we were, seemingly so different on the surface, gathering to create and build into family, togetherness, unity, and community. It amazes me how much more we have in common than I think.
Later on in the evening, I watched a father hold hands with kids (other than his own) in a circle, laughing and playing a silly game of hula hoop relay and thought to myself “if for nothing else but to create space for more families to play and laugh with one another…that’s what Family Fun Night is about.”
I believe our ministry is building into the restoration and wholeness of individuals and families in Oakland and speaking hope and peace into this community. I invite you all to come and be a part of this transforming work and experience what God can do in our own hearts and collectively as we continue to step into the life and community around us.

With that, the next Family Fun Night is next Thursday, August 25 from 6-8pm!! This month we’ll be hosting a carnival and lots of help is needed to transform DeFremery!! If you can come earlier than 6pm to help with set-up that will be much appreciated! Contact me at jenn@convergeoakland.org for more details on how to get plugged in.
