Need A Christian Excuse?

We’ve all been there. You’re there, minding your own business, and then. Someone asks you to do something, or go somewhere… This could be be anything from going to the pub at the wrong time to leading the Friday night youth outing to the local old peoples home. For whatever reason you just want an excuse to say no.

Maybe, you’re not good at saying no – in which case this is for you.

Perhaps you want something particularly Christian to say, in an attempt to make the church volunteer coordinator leave you with a smile on their face.

What Do Christians Do When Bored

Being A Bored Christian

Sometimes. When inspiration leaves us. Boredom strikes.  Yes, just like everyone else. Christians get bored. And not just during sermons.

Possibly during a period of illness, its not unusual to feel bored at times. At one point, (not when bored), Sofa did some research into what happens when Christians are bored.

Here is the Church Sofa list of 10 Things Christians Do When Bored*.

  1. Read all the bible plans on YouVersion.
  2. Build forts with leftover paper Bible studies.
  3. Artistically write Bible verses on sheets of paper.
  4. Email all the missionaries, (and any other random people associated with their church), to encourage and ask for prayer requests.
  5. Redecorate the local church office.
  6. Ponder / pray / day dream about what vulnerable people you could volunteer to work with… Never get round to asking for information from the right places.
  7. Turn on God TV*
  8. Download ALL THE SERMONS, from your church website. Email the preachers your personal critique.
  9. Actually sit down and write some new material for their Church blog.
  10. Turn off God TV*.

Have you got any to add?
