Well placed sign?
A quote that stood out from reading through “Who Needs Words?“:
“Your world is not the same as mine. It has different rules, a different history and a different culture running through its veins.”
This did make me wonder:
When putting together Church programs do we talk more then we should listen and ask?
For some reason I’m on the welcome rota at our Church, but cant help think I’m not great at it.
In fact I’m probably somewhere between options 1 and 2… except with less running, hugging, and kissing…
Welcome to the first weekly round up of 2012:
- Jon Butler asks “Who doesn’t like a Prequel?“
- Rachel Held Evans looks at the Good, Bad, and Ugly of Mark Driscoll’s book Real Marriage.
- Richard Littledale looks at putting on the Social Media Clown Suit.
- A while ago I ran a little tumblr blog, that was a little geeky – there was also a Beer Blog involved at one point. The two have been slowly killed off, to be replaced by Beer : Stuff : Nonsense. Its a little different to here…
- CNN cover the Passion 2012 conference, concentrating on the Do Something Now campaign.
- … and finally… WorshipLeader.com looks at the 20 most influential worship albums of the last 20 years.
After that one I’m off to dig up some of my old Soul Survivor albums…
Why you need to be careful when you’re late to Church.

Sweden recognises new file-sharing religion KopimismFile-sharing is a religious ceremony according to the church leader
A “church” whose central tenet is the right to file-share has been formally recognised by the Swedish government.
The Church of Kopimism claims that “kopyacting” – sharing information through copying – is akin to a religious service.
The “spiritual leader” of the church said recognition was a “large step”.
But others were less enthusiastic and said the church would do little to halt the global crackdown on piracy.
For the Church of Kopimism, information is holy and copying is a sacrament. Information holds a value, in itself and in what it contains, and the value multiplies through copying. Therefore, copying is central for the organisation and its members.
Being recognized by the state of Sweden is a large step for all of kopimi. Hopefully, this is one step towards the day when we can live out our faith without fear of persecution, says Isak Gerson, spiritual leader of the Church of Kopimism.
So at least they’re admitting they’re doing this in an attempt to avoid persecution for copying….
Worth watching if only for the Minister joining in the “fun”.
