Sparkbox is a Jesus-centered community that fuels on
🍌 Playground Thinking,
a mindset that leverages the power of
💛 Unconditional Love
For Better Futures
Playground Thinking is the mindset and environment we are building, here on the West Coast of Sweden.
It's an open invitation for young people to plug into our community's live/play model, and journey with us! Through our Startup Projects, our 101 Spark DTS, and the diverse programs we facilitate, we want to help them experience, learn and ultimately, embody Playground Thinking 🍌 as a new fiery way of life!
Our aim? Equipping the upcoming generations to grow in their ability to envision afresh the world of tomorrow, with all its complexities and challenges. And we want to launch them to fiercely step into their unique, God-given place and role on this big playground called Earth!
Because we believe that as we empower more and more people to join forces and form Micro-Communities 😀, to Love God, themselves and others better 💛, and to tap deep inside their God-given capacity to imagine & Create ⚡️ - that all of this might be a pretty good fuel to drive positive change in our world, and ultimately, build better futures!
The Sparkbox Playground is also a pretty MASSIVE property, just outside the coastal town of Ljungskile, in a place called Restenäs. We are situated 45 minutes north of Göteborg and two hours south of Oslo.
Our property is like a giant sandbox, teeming with raw potential - buildings, creative spaces, forests & fields - all of it just waiting to be filled with passionate people and crazy ideas fuelled by the shared vision of making this good world of ours less of a hell, and more like what God had in mind from the beginning.
So, what in God's good world is Playground Thinking?
THE EASIEST WAY TO MAKE SENSE OF IT, IS TO LOOK AT ITS TWO, INDIVISIBLE PARTS
RECONNECTING WITH THE GOD STORY
Firstly, Playground Thinking is all about helping people to (re)orient themselves in the great Story of God. The world has lost track of this beautiful Story and the result is catastrophic. Literally.
So, what do we do about that?
LEARNING THE FINE ART OF PLAYGROUND BUILDING
When the Story starts to sink in, people begin to wake up. Great.
Now's time to help them figure out how we are supposed to engage life on this big Playground called Earth 🍌🌍.
