Some great stuff from Simon Guillebaud:
According to wikipedia this is a new Christian movie thats based on the book God’s Not Dead: Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty:
Cant help but think it looks like a courtroom drama.
Question. Why does it feature the Newsboys? Is the film actually really based around their song?
But I guess at least it stars Superman.
Tomorrow, if you hadn’t already noticed, is October 31st. Generally also known as Halloween. There seems to be a few degrees of how Christians accept Halloween. Some people embrace it, possibly put on events like above, or go trick or treating.
Some people give out bible readings, and Christian branded bits and pieces.
Others dont answer the door.
What do you do?
Do you see any thing wrong with Halloween?
Do you or your church do anything over Halloween, or do you try and ignore it?
Well… we are to start with…
Right. After last weeks attack of the downer. Heres this weeks roundup:
In the Blogging world, Sara Batts looks how she see’s herself verses how people see her in church, while in the week that England drop out of a world cup before it even begins Jon Butler looks at sports fans in the Bible. On a Christmas theme; Richard Littledale asks preachers if they focus on both joy and suffering at Christmas time, looking at suffering, Bishop Nick Bains asks if Christians are suffering from a persecution complex?
And lastly… A brother asks “Wheres Molly?”
Imagine the scene.
You’re at the shop where you work. You’ve worked there for a while, in fact you’re the manager. The week was the same as normal, you went to church on the Sunday, you go back to work on the Monday. Its now the Friday and church is just about a distant memory.
As you’re about to slide deep into the same day to day routine, this guy with a mask on comes in. He has a gun. He’s asking for money.
A) Duck and run.
B) Give the dude what ever he wants… knowing you’ll probably have to make up the shortfall.
C) Talk to the guy about Jesus.
