The Weekly RoundUp: The Silly Social Media Edition

Well its been a quiet week on the Sofa – mostly because we’ve not had a chance to sit on it much.But we’ve still been watching…Here’s some of the best blogs / websites we’ve found this week:

The Weekly RoundUp: The Vegetable Market Edition

Its Saturday.

Here’s some weekend reading to ease you into the weekend:

  • David Kerrigan looks at the whole idea of having a calling to do something, and what does Gods plan look like anyway?
  • Remember the BigBible? There are some exciting changes coming
  • The 21CN Christian ponders if we are too nice
  • In case you missed it at the beginning of the week, the Guardian Newspaper presents an amazing video showing looking at faith, church, and the ‘Big Society’ in action…
  • Do you run a youthclub? Work with young people? Work with people? How do you remember peoples names? Dave Walker has some suggestions…
  • Ever wondered how close a vegetable market can get to a train track?
  • And finally… It looks like the guys at Westboro Baptist are planning to picket Mars Hill, the church where Mark Driscoll is based at. Now I have to admit, I’m not a fan of old Marky boy (heres one example), but I love his blog post about the planned picketing. He some how manages to balance being cheeky with being informative, and welcoming.  Nice one. Now can I get a donut?

The Church Zoo

To celebrate it being Thursday we thought we’d take a moment to introduce to some of the animals we’ve spotted watching, running around, or just loitering around the Church:

  1. Mr CatOLick – He likes to show his face in a  number of videos. Seems to like explaining the C of E to people. Shame he’s a cat really…
  2. Shouting for the Dogs. We have the newcomer to the Twitterworld – @_Dogma_
  3. Cant forget the ChurchMouse! But we do have a number of sources that suggest he could be a hamster… or a gerbil… or something…
  4. Church Ferret seems to linger on Facebook
  5. Last but not least – Mandy!

Anyone we forgot?

Victoria Cares. Do you?

Now heres something worthwhile:

Victoria Cares, a project from Spurgeons and Share Creative – the minds behind EasterLive, tells the story of a 12 year old girl who cares for her mum, while her Dad works to put food on the table.

It looks like the project is there to increase awareness of the many young carers in this country, and by using Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, helps to give people some insight into their lives.

As a taster here’s Victoria’s first video diary of the week:

 

The story can either be followed via both Twitter and Facebook – details for which are at the Victoria Cares Website.
