Simple idea time. Instead of “Russell Howards Good News”, we going to have “Church Sofa Good News”, and update this with reports of Good news we hear from Japan.
Please dont think we’re trying to take anything away from the huge scale of rubbish that is the current events that are happening in Japan, but we thought it would be nice just to have a little corner of the internet were we tried to focus on the good news coming out of that area.
Now heres something a little bit cool for a Bishop.
Bishop Bob of Crediton has relaunched his prayer page on Facebook, encouraging people to leave prayer requests for him to say on the wall.
Bishop Evens said: “People really seemed to appreciate being able to send in their prayers to me during Lent, and to know that I would say them each day. As my role takes me all over Devon, I will stop what I am doing each day – pulling over in laybys if necessary – to pray for people.”
While I do have slight concerns about people possibly looking at Bishops as having a better link to God then the rest of us*, I do feel he should be commended for trying to engage with people in this way.
*Could I be shot by the good old C of E for saying something like that?
So. Last night, myself and Mrs Mac go out, have a nice meal, come back and spend a fairly amazing couple of hours playing Lego Harry Potter. Mrs Mac loved it. It’s a fun, cheerful, playable, and a really quite funny video game. And a fun way to spend her 30th birthday.
According to this well known Bible teacher… that was stupid:
There are comments on youtube that suggest he meant people that spend hours / days on games like WoW, not video games in general. Do you think thats what he meant?
Are sweeping statements like this helpful from the pulpit?
