God and Donald Trump

There is a new book, called “God and Donald Trump”, which explores Donald Trumps faith in God, and asks if his victory in the American elections was part of Gods plan?

Here is the trailer for the book which tells more about it…

The thing is, I kinda fancy giving it a read. I wonder what sort of conclusions “God and Donald Trump” will make..?

Theological Question of The Week*: The Ultimate Phone Protection?

Gods-Protection-Tempest-Tempered-Glass

After feeling my nerves spike when Little Sofa demanded to go for a walk with my phone, I figured it was time to actually get a case for my phone.

I cant help but feel slightly impressed by the level of safety offered by the screen protectors that I grabbed at the same time time…

I guess it does make me wonder.

If God offered protection for mobile phones. What would that protection look like?

10 Ways That Christian Kids Delay Bed Time

Long time readers of The Sofa will know of my daughter, “Little Sofa”. I don’t mention her often as this place is often about silly church things… not little person things.

Now, if you don’t have kids yourself, they seem to hate the concept of going to relax in a bed and gently going to sleep for the night. (It’s like they believe that they’ll miss out on all the fun if they sleep.)

Normally kids employ tactics to stay up like, running, dancing, needing a wee, and going to the toilet.

Lately I’ve noticed that Little Sofa occasionally tries a different technique to avoid going to sleep… She starts talking about church things… and well I guess we’re never sure how much we should tell her to go to sleep if she’s asking questions about Jesus?

Anyway here’s a collection of Christian style techniques she has employed to stay awake. (Some of which I may have made up):

  1. Opens up and explains what they did at Sunday school / holiday club.
  2. Asks questions about diversity within the human race, and why we’re created differently.
  3. Asks about the people out in the lions den.
  4. “Did Jesus go to school?”
  5. Test parents about deep theological matters.
  6. Starts writing practice. Writing Bible verses.
  7. Insists on a really long prayer.
  8. Sings a long forgotten song from Holiday Club, really nicely, with cute dialed up to 12.
  9. “How does God know our name?”
  10. Complains about a dream during which they are chased by a really big blue book.

Any more you can offer?
