sauna missions?

I always enjoy interacting with people from many different cultures when I'm in Prague. This time, I talked with an Estonian man who told me about the sauna mission projects his church does.

Apparently saunas are very popular in Estonia and nearby countries--understandably so, I guess, since the climate there is so cold.

Apparently saunas are also quite the social event. Let me just quote Wikipedia here: Social and mixed gender nudity...[are] common in the conventional sauna.

So in order to attract more young people to his church, the Estonian man explained, they have a free sauna. Of course, he added, boys and girls go at different times.

I haven't approached my church with the idea yet. Think they'd go for sauna missions? ;)

    Can I apply for a sauna mission in my own home? Using the argument that my home is my temple, or some such....
