MuggleNet: Half-Blood Prince Countdown

Shine like a Patronus!

Well, we've got a little over 14 hours until the great event tonight! HOORAY! I'm super excited and I know that Mags and the Silent Partner (aka Ash) are as well.

About a week ago, Mugglenet posted an article about a new campaign that the Harry Potter Alliance has created. It's called, "What Would Dumbledore Do?" It's very similar to the "What Would Jesus Do" campaign years and years ago. Just ask yourself what would Dumbledore do in this situation.

But as Christians, we are called to an even higher standard. We are called to love like Christ loved. And Dumbledore is a fictional character. Christ is not. And NOBODY loves like Christ does. We can aspire too, but we're humans. We are flawed. Only our creator can show unconditional love.

So tonight, instead of asking yourself, "What Would Dumbledore Do?" in the midst of crazy fans (myself included), mobs of children, and a lot of excitement ask yourself, "What would JESUS do?" How can you love those around you? How can you serve them? How can you let the light of Christ shine in you tonight like a patrounus?

"Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:15-16
