Escape Rooms And Rage Rooms

You may have heard of “escape rooms,” where a group of people are trapped in a room and have to solve puzzles in order to open a door and exit. Our staff did an “Escape Room” on a field trip at a recent retreat. 

But have you heard of “rage rooms?” They are places operated by companies, like Tantrums, where angry people come and blow off steam with the help of a baseball bat and some inanimate objects.  Twenty-five bucks can buy you five minutes of violence in a “rage room,” where you can smash a TV,for instance, with a lead pipe, baseball bat, or golf club. 

The appeal of “rage rooms” is that they offer “relaxation through destruction.”  Todd Kashdan, a clinical psychology professor at George Mason University, doubts that “destructotherapy” is a genuinely useful form of anger management because it does not solve underlying issues.

It’s too early to tell if “rage rooms” will be a sustainable business model.  I do know of one Person, though, who can help us get to the “underlying issues” behind our rage or bitterness. 

And it doesn’t take smashing a TV to find Him.

Our journey through Ruth and “Bitter To Better” continues this-weekend.  Read Ruth 3, and come with friends in tow! 

Parents, don’t forget: The deadline for registering middle school/high school students for our incredible Branch Camp “Marked” is tomorrow!  You can check out the promotional video and register here.

Grace and Peace,

See You This Weekend!
